Nearly two months after his April 29 review of Parkway Deli & Restaurant, Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema has named the Silver Spring mainstay one of his 7 Favorite Places to Eat Right Now:
The menu gathers a lot of wishes spanning breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you go for just one dish, make it chicken soup. Tender chunks of chicken pack the golden broth, gently herby and crammed with a fistful of carrots, celery, onion and egg noodles. (Matzoh balls are optional.) Every spoonful has the power of a hug. As for sandwiches, the reuben hits pleasure points with tangy sauerkraut, sweet Russian dressing and half a pound of thinly shaved corned beef. The best of the pastry case is a warm-spiced slab of carrot cake that can easily satisfy three forks.
After being removed because of covid, the restaurant’s popular pickle bar returned last month.
