    A trip from one of our reviewers,, "For desserts, skip the run-of-the-mill "assorted cookies of good fortune," and opt for the bananas brûlée on puff pastry or passion fruit cheesecake." Read more

    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

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    Ask the chef for the brown rice with Asian vegetables and tofu in soy glaze—it's not on the menu but he'll whip it up any day. Read more

    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.

    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 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

    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!

    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

    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..
