Washington Metro – Real Jewish Delis, Restaurants 2

Finding a real, KOSHER deli or restaurant is NOT easy in Washington DC Metro. Amazing! Shocking! You can read about the first kosher Jewish delis and restaurants in and near DC at Max’s Restaurant and Shalom Deli. They do catering and pre-arranged take-out meals, too, which will also work for those needing Muslim Halal food.

Today, luckily, here are some more establishments where orthodox Jews and religious Muslims can buy food or dine.

Eli’s Restaurant is a kosher restaurant in Washington, DC. It is not open Friday night or any of Saturday, in compliance with the hours of the Sabbath, but you may be able to pre-arrange for meals before-hand, to keep in your hotel room refrigerator.

Their menu is a nice mix of traditional Jewish and Middle-Eastern comfort food, and plates which allow orthodox Jews and Muslims to experience meals from other cuisines, but with kosher ingredients. So, yes, you can get some kosher American “fast-food style” or kosher Mexican, Cajun, Italian or Asian influenced food, here! There also are some vegetarian choices.
