Call Your Mother is a Jew-ish deli in the heart of Washington D.C. But it's not just any deli—it's one with a twist.
All of their sandwiches are named after retirement communities in South Florida. And they're not just your average, run-of-the-mill sandwiches, either. No, these babies are loaded with fresh, delicious ingredients that will make your taste buds jump for joy.
Chef Daniela Moreira and Andrew Dana, are the Owners of Call Your Mother. This is their first deli, but they're hardly new to the restaurant business as they started Timber Pizza Company too.
So what's their twist on the classic deli? For one, bagel sandwiches are a big deal here. But beyond that, they're also doing a lot of inventive things with smoked fish, house-cured meats, and pickles. Oh, and the baked goods are serious business too. We're talking babka French toast, rugelach donned with crushed pistachios and honey, challah cinnamon rolls with mascarpone cheese icing—stuff like that.
Not content with just serving up your standard pastrami and corned beef sandwiches, Call Your Mother is shaking things up with a new fall menu. This time around, they're serving up some latke fries with applesauce or sour cream.
But that's not all. They're also adding dinner for the first time at one of their locations. So if you're looking for something a little different, this is the place to be.
Not familiar with Montreal-style bagels? They're made with a sweeter dough and they're boiled in honey water before they're baked, which gives them a crisp crust and a chewy interior. And at Call Your Mother, they're wood-fired, which gives them an added depth of flavor.
The bagels here have been described as having a "Boca meets Brooklyn" vibe, and I have to say, I agree. They're the perfect mix of New York and Montreal styles, and they're absolutely delicious. Whether you get them plain or topped with one of the delicious signature spreads, you're in for a treat.
