Eater: Call Your Mother Will Keep Growing With a New Bagel Shop in North Bethesda
Fast-expanding “Jew-ish” deli Call Your Mother is adding yet another location for fans to buy wood-fired bagels. A shop at North Bethesda’s Pike & Rose complex is expected to open in the spring, a representative tells Eater.
Call Your Mother’s fifth store (11807 Grand Park Avenue) adds to the pink bagel trolley the company opened in Bethesda (8804 Old Georgetown Road) in June. Other pandemic-era additions include outposts on Capitol Hill and Georgetown. Co-owners Andrew Dana and 2017 Eater Young Gun Daniela Moreira debuted the hit bagel brand in Park View in fall 2018, earning a spot on Eater’s 16 best new restaurants in America the subsequent year.
The newly announced 2,300-square-foot location, which slides into a former Lucky Brand retail store, will carry popular orders like the “Royal Palm” (plain cream cheese, smoked salmon, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, and capers on an everything bagel), a Latin-leaning pastrami sandwich on rye, and babka muffins. The new shop will be open for on-site ordering and pre-order pickup from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
