Awesome! Jewish-style deli coming to Alfie's space: wood-fired bagels, sandwiches etc. by Timber Pizza folks


This is great news: the folks from Timber Pizza Co. on Upshur are taking over the old Alfie's/Tchoup's/Mothership space at 3301 Georgia Avenue, turning it into a Jewish-inspired deli named Call Your Mother. They jokingly call it a "Jew-ish" deli as it's not super traditional, with bagels made in a wood-fired oven that are a cross between New York and the denser, smaller and sweeter Montreal-style bagels. They're calling them "New Montreal" bagels.

They'll have Jewish-inspired food like latke fries and seared Matzoh ball soup. Bagel sandwiches may include egg, smoked salmon or smoked whitefish, plus rye, wheat and challah and occasionally donuts, croissants and pastries, according to the Post.

Interestingly, they also plan to have a supper club four nights a week with various themed dinners, like Salvadoran, fried chicken, Peking duck and others. I guess to appeal to the dinner crowd.

They're aiming at April, but need to renovate the space. No word on liquor yet, I'm trying to find out more. Pretty pumped for this.
