Parkway has a decent array of East European Jewish-style dishes but nothing special. Much of their dishes (at least the dairy ones) seem commercially prepared - not in-house. It's a short order place. If you are from NY and craving that caliber of deli, you are still out of luck. But if you keep kosher this is NOT for you (except for cold, dairy dishes perhaps) If you want kosher deli (meat only), try Eli's in the District, Max's in Silver Spring, Moti's Grill (KosherMart) in Rockville or Pita Plus in College Park (next to Univ. of Maryland). All are decent (recommend especially Moti's Grill or Eli's, Max's has slightly more limited fast food menu plus good falafel and schwarma.. Moti's and Pita Plus also have good Israeli grill foods. ) but again nothing even close to NY and no one in Washington has decent kosher corned beef.

Perfect for a noon breakfast/brunch, having woken up after a night out. The menu consists of traditional breakfast staples along with a broad selection of Jewish-type fare (blintzes, smoked fish, etc). I strongly recommend the Latkes-Lox-and-Eggs dish, which is a fantastic Jewish version of Eggs Benedict (swap the latkes for the English muffin, and smoked salmon for the ham). The latkes are golden-fried and not too greasy, try them on the side with apple sauce and sour cream. The smoked fish platters (several different kinds available) are simple (fish, bagels, cream cheese, currants, onions...) but very much worth it. The blintzes are also worth mention, smallish but very rich and tasty. Even the coffee is above average. Be warned that this place can get mobbed late-mornings on weekends, but I've never had to wait more than, say 10 minutes even when there's a line extending into the front deli.
