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 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 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.
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.
The Source now has brunch. Be sure to get try one of the three Bloody Marys!
You can't go wrong with an order of any kind of dumpling at The Source. What's your favorite? Post a pic!
My faves: Tuna Tartare & Kobe Sliders... Both only avail in the lounge/bar
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.
the tuna tartare appetizer is amaaazing
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!
Everything was amazing but my favorite of the 4 appetizers and 4 entrees I tried was the Lamb lettuce Cups. Loved it!
Try the Early Sweet Corn Velvet Soup - with gulf shrimp dumplings, wok blistered corn and mushrooms
The duck bao buns are on the Post's #40Eats list for 2013.
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..
hmmm.. trust me when i say this. LETTUCE WRAPS
The wok fried sea bass with ponzu is unreal. Crabcakes are divine.
Pomegranate mojitos and lamb is a sure fire win.
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!
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
