    Tasty Jewish and Jewish-influenced cuisine. Latkes are consistently good, as are the brussels sprouts (in season). House-made sodas = yum!

    Not many places serve whitefish salad on a bullfrog bagel. Unfortunately soup was too salty and served warm rather than hot.

    More Barney Greengrass in LA (RIP) than anything in NY. DGS is well worth the visit. A sandwich at Katz is ~$25, just a reference point. The quality of food and unique deli vibe sets DGS apart.

    Falafel is gluten free. Always a good soup! Pastrami is the best

    Great brunch. Bottomless bloody marys and mimosas were also nice as was the bagel and lox.

    French toast was the people's favorite it seemed. The Pastrami hash was mine. Grab the pickles and the I love you a latkes. It'll keep you honest. Place is the best.

    The DGS Hamburger is a solid choice: Creekstone Farms Beef, Smoked Jalapeno Mayo, B&B Pickles on Potato Bun with French Fries. Add some provolone cheese and gribenes and you're set!

    As far as DC goes this is the best spot for matzah ball soup so far. Good broth. Good balls. Good pickles (although you have to pay for them). Fun menu items

    The hand-cut Pastrami sandwich. The chicken liver is to die for.

    Don't tell my grandma, but the potato latkes at DGS kick her potato latkes' butt.

    Needing a bowl of matzoh ball soup? Check. Or a juicy Rueben sandwich? Check. Or maybe some potato latkes? Check. For me, it’s often the Whitefish Salad sandwich served on a bagel. Read more

    Not impressed at all. Food is so-so and very expensive. $6 for a side of fries with my $14 corned beef sandwich, ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and walk on by.

    This refined deli and restaurant puts out standard-bearer versions of Reuben and pastrami sandwiches, and also manages to elevate such dishes as chopped liver. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The matzo ball soup is perfect on a cold day and the latkes are just plain perfect. They are a must have if you dine here.

    Matzo ball soup - delicious and perfect for winter, latkes - decent but slightly too soft, service - outstanding

    Cute space but food was WAY oversalted (both matzoh soup and latkes). The latkes were also way overcooked. The hunt for good Jewish cooking in DC continues!

    Really delicious food, almost meeting the standards of the true NYC Jewish deli. Indulge a bit and order the shmutzy fries. The Reuben was great.

    DGS is no standard-issue deli. For starters, the Dupont Circle outpost comes with a bar. Further, the kitchen is more respectful than reverential regarding tradition.

    Matzoh ball soup & latkes not as good as Bubbe used to make. But that's an unfair standard, right?

    Find your way to the bar at the back for happy hour (before 7 pm) and try the very affordable and very delicious treats.

    Chef Barry Koslow makes a mean matzoh ball soup, and the restaurant also has festive cocktails and a solid brunch offering. [Eater 38 Member]
