The District’s locally grown “Jew-ish” deli, Call Your Mother, has opened its newest location in Georgetown.
Sitting pretty in pink at the corner of 35th and O streets NW, Call Your Mother Georgetown is the bagel brand’s fourth location. The shop boasts 1100 sq. ft. dressed in the original pink color from the building’s previous occupant, GreenWork Florals, and accented by Call Your Mother’s signature teal.
“We’re excited to become a part of this community. It feels like this space was meant for us,” says Daniela Moreira, co-owner and Executive Chef of Call Your Mother. “We’ve been ready to open in Georgetown for months and we know Georgetown has been ready for us, too. We’ve all been waiting on this for a while now and have been getting asked every day for the last 6 months when we’re opening. We’ve always believed we’d be a positive addition to the neighborhood. We’re just some friendly folks selling bagels and coffee out of an already pink corner building and we’re so grateful to have the opportunity to do that.”
The unique shade of pink isn’t the only thing specific to the Georgetown spot. While each Call Your Mother shop is currently adhering to social distancing guidelines and only offering pickup service via online ordering, Call Your Mother Georgetown will remain pick up only once restrictions for restaurants are lifted. But like their Park View, Capitol Hill and Bethesda locations, guests will enjoy outstanding woodfired bagels, chocolate babka muffins, and favorite signature sandwiches like the beloved Gleneagle made with candied salmon cream cheese, cucumbers, crispy shallots, and seasonal greens on a za’tar bagel and Sun City, stacked with bodega-style local eggs, American and Cheddar cheeses, spicy honey, and either local bacon or pastrami on an everything bagel.
Call Your Mother Georgetown is located at 3428 O Street NW and open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, and orders can be placed online between 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
The award-winning ‘Fine Fast Casual’ Indian restaurant by hospitality duo Rahul Vinod and Sahil Rahman, RASA has also expanded operations with the addition of a new eatery in the District in Mount Vernon Triangle.

“Since we began this journey, our vision has been to make Indian cuisine accessible, and we’re extremely excited to continue to open diners minds to new worlds offering unique, high-quality, and chef-driven meals at a $10 price point,” said RASA co-founder Rahul Vinod.
