Best Blintzes in DC/VA/MD?

I'm looking to track down a good restaurant that serves traditional blintzes in the DC-area. If anyone has any recommendations, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  1. While I haven't had them, I know that Krupins in Tenleytown (or whatever it is now called) has fruit filled blintzes. I imagine they are pretty good since they do a lot of traditional deli foods well.

      Thanks Elyssa. Do you happen to know if they have "plain" blintzes with just cheese/sour cream too?

        I'm sure they have cheese blintzes...its kind of a classic Jewish deli type thing. They also have really good kugel there :).

        I've never heard of sour cream blintzes before.

          A cheese stuffing -- usually farmer's cheese, pot cheese, or cottage cheese mixed with sour cream -- is what I think of as the basic blintz recipe. Everything else is elaboration.
