From a press release:

“Call Your Mother, Washington D.C.’s nationally renowned, locally grown “Jew-ish” deli, opens its first mobile kitchen, the Call Your Mother Trolley, Tuesday, July 14.

Also known as Honey, the original name of the antique streetcar, Call Your Mother’s bagel trolley is rolling into Bethesda, Maryland and parking next to Suburban Hospital at 8804 Old Georgetown Road. With social distancing in mind, guests can order bulk bagels and their favorite signature sandwiches ahead here or at the trolley. The full Call Your Mother menu will be available soon.

“It’s one of the old trollies that used to tour the city, but it’s no longer orange and green,” says Andrew Dana, Founder and Co-Owner of Call Your Mother. Instead, the trolley is outfitted in the brand’s emblematic pink and green meant to evoke “Boca-meets-Brooklyn” blending outstanding bagels and bright South Florida vibes. Some of South Florida’s well-known Jewish retirement homes are the inspiration behind the names of Call Your Mother’s quirky woodfire bagel sandwiches. Read More

1443 P Street, NW (from happier times before the closures, obviously)

From an email:

“Commissary, the casual American concept from EatWell DC, re-opens for takeout and delivery on Wednesday, May 20th at 1443P St NW. The restaurant has been closed for the past 2 months and has undergone a top to bottom cleaning and menu evolution. The casual all-day spot has retailored the menu to better serve the take-out and delivery market while retaining all the fan favorites.

“We waited until we had a better understanding of the situation and could formulate a plan of safety for our team and our guests. We have great people who want to get back to work and providing that opportunity, carefully, has been a goal since we closed. It is important for us to be your neighborhood “go to”. We wanted to be there for the community, but our team’s health and safety had to come first. Now that we have a safe plan, we felt it was time to reemerge” says principal owner David Winer

Chef Tom Crenshaw has been brainstorming for weeks and the new breakfast and lunch menu offers more sandwich options like Pastrami and Grill Vegetables as well as breakfast sandwiches like Panini and Fried Chicken with eggs while still offering classics like Blueberry Pancakes and Patty melts. Bullfrog Bagels and La Colombe coffee are also still available for take-out and Delivery. Dinner options will preserve the beloved Herb Roasted Chicken, Crispy Skin Salmon and Fish & Chips while adding what’s sure be a new fav, Hot Chicken and family style meals (for 4) that have options for Salads, Entrees, Sides and Desserts at a super reasonable neighborhood price. You can look forward to pop up specials from our Eatwell DC sister restaurants as well.

Cocktails, including Frose, Bloodies and Mimosas (by glass & pitcher), Beer, Wine (bottles and cans) will be offered Read More

Thanks to Kari for sending: “I live down the street from Nina May and have seen my fair share of restaurants open and close (I am looking at you “The Bird ” and “Frenchy’s Naturel“) any way, looks like Nina May is now open for coffee, breakfast and lunch and I really want them to succeed. It is a tough corner with not too much foot traffic.”

“After a successful launch in the Fall, Shaw’s New American restaurant Nina May has introduced a daytime café within the restaurant. Open Monday – Friday, from 7 am – 2 pm, the café’s menu reflects the team’s continued dedication to locally sourced and sustainable food ingredients. Read More
