    I was so thrilled to get an amazing Wolfgang Puck restaurant in my home city. The food is delicious, especially the Kobe Beef Sliders and the Tuna Tartare. -Lynda Erkiletian, Real Housewives of DC

    Love the Asian inspired menu. Chef Puck's restaurant is not only spacious and relaxed but sexy. Great cocktails as well. -Tamesha Warren, Top Chef

    The sleekness of The Source gives away its status as a power spot, but the upscale restaurant is known for its authentic rendering of Asian classics. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The downstairs lounge offers one of the area’s best happy hours for eating: From 4 to 6 you can enjoy three dishes for $20.11.

    During dim-sum service, grab the duck bao buns. Slivers of moist duck are tucked into doughy Chinese steamed buns and paired with crunchy cucumbers. The duck takes 3 days to make and it shows. Read more

    We want you to enjoy your dining experience inside the Newseum Interactive Museum. Our Asian influenced menu results in a synthesis of Western proteins and portion sizes with Pacific Rim accents.

    Phenomenal food, I recommend the wok fired shrimp dim sum drizzled with XO sauce. One one the tastiest dishes you'll come across garunteed.

    Wolfgang Puck's sleek and spacious glass-and-steel dining room in the Newseum plays with pan-Asian flavors, skipping from China to Japan, Korea to India.

    If you leave here without having a dumpling you messed up.

    Great happy hour special down at the bar really allows you to sample the menu without the price of the upstairs dining room. Opt for the re-imagined bahn mi or the frenched sweet/tangy chicken wings.

    Great drinks and the bar menu is a great deal!

    Check out the lounge at the Source - you can order from both menus and the lounge menu is a little cheaper. Chat up the friendly, knowledgeable bartenders and then get the Asian pear martini!

    Wow not good. I'm a little disappointed at the long service and pushy water guys. The food was fishy and drippy. But the pork dumplings get a 10/10! Loud and old scene. Try again wolf gang puck..

    I have a peanut allergy, but took a risk & came for dim sum. Waiter had no concept of how to handle allergies, & I had to prompt him to check w/ kitchen when he couldn't remember if a dish had peanuts
