Call Your Mother knows how to attract a crowd. This fast-casual Jewish deli is the closest DC has gotten to a New York City bagel—which is a big deal. The bread, ranging from plain to maple salt and pepper, is made fresh and served with cream cheeses like strawberry-mint and candied salmon. Their signature sandwiches, like The Pastrami Sun City, made with pastrami, egg, cheddar and honey, are instant classics. The shop's decor includes quirky designs in aquamarine and pink, so get ready to pull out your phone at least once to snap a quick pic while holding up the line. That said, it’s in your best interest to skip the line entirely. Order ahead, especially on weekends where wait times (typically around 10-15 minutes) can hike up quickly.
