Largest Jewish community is in Silver Spring, which is a suburb of Washington. For tourists, best place to stay is in downtown Silver Spring, which has a metro stop and a nearby  shul in Woodside Park within walking distance.

The shul website also has alot of helpful tourist information

1 block to the metro to downtown DC on the red line and 1 block to Max's, which is a great reasonably priced fleishig restaurant.

What about "Nut House Pizza" is it good? (on the same corner.)

10-15 minutes.  You could also look at hotels in Towson which is 10-15 minutes the other direction.

Bistro was a great restaurant, went there a few times was always good. Unfortunately, I tried making reservations there today, and I was told that they are no longer open for business.

Also if anyone is ever looking to go to a hockey game in DC let me know I have access to some amazing seats (and cheaper ones) at great prices.

I'll try Eli's like some others have recommended.

Anyone want to post a current list of open kosher restaurants in DC/Silver Spring vicinity and what not to miss in each of them?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
