THE WALL STREET DELI, Chesapeake Village Shopping Center, Route 50, Queenstown. Open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. (301) 827-6313.
The service and the food are top notch in this New York-style deli run by Marty Spector and his daughter, Dawn. Everything is homemade -- Manhattan Clam Chowder, roast beef and corn beef, turkey breast, knishes, potato pancakes, chopped beef, seafood and chicken salads, and carrot and cheese cakes. Fresh bagels, bought from the Brooklyn Bagel company, are baked on the premises. In fact, Spector buys a lot of his supplies from New York, such as the famous Dr. Brown's sodas and wonderful Halva candies.
He says New York has the best delis in the world, serving sandwiches you can't put your mouth around. So does Spector!
