The Source is the first fine dining restaurant in the nation’s capital headlined by Chef Wolfgang Puck. Designed by EDG, the three-level restaurant is the signature dining experience at the Newseum. The lounge and dining room feature Asian-influenced dishes.
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
The apps and sides are good, but overpriced, and entres are meh and way overpriced.
Tuna tartar cones are fantastic.
Washingtonian recommends the mini-burgers.
From Washingtonian: get the mini-burgers.
In their June 2014 issue, Washingtonian Magazine said the mini-burgers were one of metropolitan DC's 25 best burgers.
Try their pork belly bao buns... or just suck on a dry musty placemat and drink a bottle of hoisin sauce and call it a day.
I got to meet Wolfgang Puck himself!! Everything was delicious but dessert was divine!!!
Bitches Who Brunch said The Source served up the best bloody marys in 2012!
Suckling pig, tuna tartare, octopus... Oh, my!
Tuna tartare cones and pork buns are excellent!
Everything was amazing but my favorite of the 4 appetizers and 4 entrees I tried was the Lamb lettuce Cups. Loved it!
Saw a very big roach when I was there for dinner. Lets just say we did not stay
Try the Miso Glazed Doughnuts, 50-Bean Vanilla Ice Cream - Amazing end to an amazing meal
Try the Shanghai Noodles - Curry, chili, braised oxtail. A LOT of oxtail. And so good.
Try the Chinois Style Chicken Salad - Mustard dressing, candied cashews. Excellent and very refreshing.
Try the Duck Bao Buns - Lacquered duckling, cucumber
Try the Prime Beef Sliders - Chapel Hills Farms cheddar
Try the Szechaun Dan Dan Noodles - Roasted pork and crushed peanuts. Awesome.
Try the Spicy Hangover Eggs - Tamarind chili short ribs
Try the Chinese Sausage Fried Rice - With wok fried egg. Great.
Try the Organic Chicken Dumpling - Beeche and oyster mushrooms
Try the Early Sweet Corn Velvet Soup - with gulf shrimp dumplings, wok blistered corn and mushrooms
Try the Border Springs Lamb Duo - soy marinated chop and stir fry of lamb tenderloin
Try the Early Sweet Corn Velvet Soup - with gulf shrimp dumplings, wok blistered corn and mushrooms (before soup pour)
Try the Early Sweet Corn Velvet Soup - with gulf shrimp dumplings, wok blistered corn and mushrooms (before the soup)
Love the spicy tuna tartare
The duck bao buns are on the Post's #40Eats list for 2013.
Phenomenal food, I recommend the wok fired shrimp dim sum drizzled with XO sauce. One one the tastiest dishes you'll come across garunteed.
Order as many different kinds of dumplings as possible. You won't be disappointed.
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.
Perfect spot for power hour lunch while on jury duty. Get the burger. Easily best in DC.
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..
Keanan is the best
the tuna tartare sesame cones is great! i got 3 appetizers instead of a huge entrees so i could try many things..
TT tip: Drewno's soup dumplings have become puffy soup buns with bao-like dough wrapping his luxe pork-belly filling. Chile-spiced wontons meld pork butt with ginger, scallions and garlic.
dumplings are wow.
$30 prix fixe plus Newseum tickets is the way to go. Excellent!
Tuna tar tar is a party in your mouth:-)
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.
You can't go wrong with an order of any kind of dumpling at The Source. What's your favorite? Post a pic!
If your looking for delicious...eat here. Chef Scott is a mastermind. Eat the duck!!!
