Kosher in DC?

I'm looking for some kosher spots in DC. Any ideas?

      Eli's is the only place I know that is Kosher. But I do remember seeing a sticker with some sort of Kosher website on their door. It seemed as if you could search for kosher or kosher-friendly restaurants in the District. Perhaps a quick google search will help you out.

    2. The JCC on 16th St. has a kosher cafe

        1. Max's Cafe in Wheaton, 2319 University Blvd.
          Not fancy but shwarma (and more); you could plotz!

            great suggestion! In my humble opinion the best falafel in the area

          2. You can also check out some vegetarian restaurants as well as halal places in the city.

              Jacey - that will most likely not work for people who are strict about keeping kosher.

                If you keep kosher outside the home, most of these places will work. One of my friends is pretty strict about keeping kosher outside the home and that works. If you are very hardcore, you don't really eat outside the house unless it's stated as a jewish/kosher restaurant.
