The Jewish Mother Backstage

Since opening in 1974, The Jewish Mother Backstage has hosted the likes of Dave Matthews, Hootie & the Blowfish, and Ice Cube. But despite its famous visitors and the media frenzy surrounding Ice Cube's melting accident, the New York–style deli still maintains a neighborhood atmosphere. Local and regional music acts fill the stage with groovy tunes, and the menu of hearty comfort fare is rooted in tradition, inspired by the owner's own Jewish mother. More than a dozen delicatessen sandwiches boast family names such as the Mother's Son reuben and the Mother's Sailor Friend, a split knockwurst with gooey swiss cheese and pastrami. Aromas of meatloaf fill the eatery at dinner, and breakfast service sates guests' early-morning hunger and desire to crow onstage.

Customer Reviews

Good location...
ARMINDA I. · March 15, 2013
Went to the Jewish Mother on a Sunday for sandwiches and a drink. Bartender was very professional and was always moving. Either seating guests, taking care of her patrons at the bar or cleaning. She was continually wiping things down. Sign of a good bartender. Even after a busy Sat nite the place was clean and ready for business Sun morning. Sandwiches were big and filling. Ingredients were good and fresh.
