a genesis story…
My dad is Jewish and my mom is not. My family made latkes for Hanukkah, and then opened presents under our Christmas tree. This makes me, Jew-ish.
Jeff Zients, a DC native, has always had a dream to open a Jewish deli. When he approached me and my very non-Jewish, Argentinian Chef, Daniela, about making his dream a reality, we knew it couldn't be your traditional Jewish deli.
So whether you're Jewish, Jew-ish or nothing in between, Call Your Mother is a deli where anyone can enjoy some of our favorite food traditions....with a twist.
