Owned by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, the Source is an acclaimed pan-Asian restaurant located inside the Newseum. The restaurant is divided into two sections: a formal upstairs dining room and a casual downstairs lounge inspired by traditional Japanese izakayas (after-work drinking establishments). Connected by a marble staircase, the dining areas are designed in a modern minimalist style with floor-to-ceiling windows and a two-story wine wall holding more than 2,000 bottles. The lounge menu includes fresh sushi and Sichuan chicken dumplings, while the main dining room menu features signature dishes like the crisp suckling pig with black plum purée.

Insider Tip:

If you want to try the popular chocolate soufflé, make sure to order it with your entrée, as it takes about 30 minutes to bake.
