Eater DC reported:

“Less than a year after “Jew-ish” deli Call Your Mother debuted in Park View, the wildly popular bagel brand already plans to expand with another D.C. location. Its second bagel shop, located across the city in Georgetown, will sit inside a bubble gum-colored building that most recently housed a fancy floral shop.” (more…)

“Like Dinner at You Mama’s House, But Way Tighter (& with More Booze)!”

From an email:

“The “Jew-ish” deli gained a cult-like following quickly after opening their store in October 2018, and now has opened their doors after hours for Supper Club.

Call Your Mother owner and DC local, Andrew Dana, transforms the deli into a themed-supper club for 18 guests–joining the community for an intimate, family-style dinner.” (more…)

Thanks to Evan and Andrew for sending from Georgia and Lamont Street, NW. Andrew writes:

“Eagle perched on top of the building catty-corner from Call Your Mother Sunday morning. Also, line out the door again. Bagels definitely rock.

Are we at peak PoPville with this hawks around town x call your mother collab?”

Ed. Note: If we caught the eagle flying away with an amazon package in its talons we’d be at peak. Your reach should exceed your grasp, Or what’s a heaven for? Or something like that.

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

I am not a foodie but there are two things my upbringing have made me expert in – pizza and bagels. We covered the great pizza news yesterday, and apparently God is smiling on me because I got some great bagel (and more) news today. After some serious serious anticipation the folks at Timber Pizza are opening Call Your Mother in the the former Alfie’s space next week! To start they’ll be open 7am-2pm Weekdays and 8am-3pm on weekends. In a few weeks they’ll also be launching a super club in the evenings so stay tuned for that. Also stay tuned for an exact opening date next week and the full menu. In the meantime, I got a sneak peek and a sneak taste from Andrew and partner/head chef Daniela Moreira:

Oh and there will be Babka!! And of course a black and white cookie.  Ed. Note: I’m normally not a black and white cookie guy but this one is much lighter and tastier than the ones from my youth.  Can’t wait to taste some sandwiches too.

Check out some sneak peeks of the inside: (more…)
