We Deliver!

Since acquiring Ben Yehuda in 2012 the most common request I've had was to offer delivery. However, to do it properly required a special type of insurance and an umbrella policy that was not offered by our insurance company.  I'm excited to say that we've finally worked these issues and we're now experimenting with delivery through GrubHub. 

I say experimenting, because the commission that GrubHub usually takes would have us operating at a loss for GrubHub sales.  However, GrubHub has generously provided us with a link for our current customers that would reduce the sales to a much more manageable rate.  When ordering, please order through the GrubHub tab on our webpage or GrubHub buttons scattered on our page so that we can continue to partner with GrubHub for this service.

We're looking forward to making your day a little easier by bringing the pizza directly to you!

P.S. To start we will not be accepting GrubHub deliveries on Saturday nights.  Once we feel like everything is operating smoothly we plan on adding Saturday night hours.

Delayed Credit Card Transactions

Recently, Ben Yehuda Café and Pizzeria has become aware that in-store September credit card transactions were not reaching our bank in a timely way.  There was a backlog in Ben Yehuda’s secure credit card system.   Once the problem was detected, Ben Yehuda’s credit card processing company began working directly with each customer’s credit card company to clear every transaction safely.  No information was lost or compromised.

As a result, you will find charge(s) on your October credit card bill for Ben Yehuda transactions that occurred between September 1 and September 25.  Please understand that these are not duplicate charges.  This correction amounts to a delay in the processing of your credit card purchases from September.  You can review your September statement to assure yourself that there were no Ben Yehuda credit card charges from September 1 through September 25.

Our on-line ordering platform was not affected by this backlog.  Ben Yehuda on-line credit card customers will find their September transactions on their September credit card statements, as usual.

The problem has been corrected.    Since September 26, all credit card sales have been processed normally.

If you have any questions, please contact Josh Katz at josh@monumentalkosher.com . We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Now Carrying Soupergirl Soups!

We are excited to announce that we will now be carrying Soupergirl Soups Sunday - Friday.

About Soupergirl:

Soupergirl is DC’s very own local soup company. Inspired by Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma, Soupergirl is bringing delicious and healthy eating to Washingtonians one bowl of soup at a time. Soupergirl’s soups are a fusion of modern flavors and old fashioned cooking techniques that highlight seasonal, fresh ingredients from local farmers. Each batch is cooked slowly, from scratch and with love. All soups are vegan and certified kosher, a nod to founder Sara Polon’s Jewish upbringing. The creation of Soupergirl’s soups is a team effort between Sara and her mom, Marilyn Polon. In addition to cooking and overseeing the day-to-day business operations, Sara works directly with the local farmers who provide the seasonal produce featured in the soups and salads. She also provides the comedic levity that makes its way into all aspects of Soupergirl. In the test kitchen, Soupermom creates the recipes and transforms the farm fresh ingredients into the unique and distinctive selections that make up the evolving and entertaining menu. 

Soupergirl Menu:

Soupergirl’s menu changes regularly based on whatever is in season. Some of her creative offerings include: Souperpapa’s Papa Al Pomodoro Soup with tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil; Sing a Song About Watermelon Gazpacho with watermelon, tomato, cucumber and jalapeno; “Cream” of Asparagus made with vegan-friendly cashew cream; Harper Lee’s Quinoa Vegetable Soup with chunks of zucchini, red bell peppers, carrots, green beans, quinoa and basil; Jamaican Me CrazySweet Potato Soup with sweet potatoes, coconut milk, and dark rum just to name a few.
