The Source is the first fine dining restaurant in the nation’s capital headlined by Master Chef Wolfgang Puck. Designed by EDG, the three-level restaurant is the signature dining experience at the Newseum, an interactive museum of news. The Source offers two distinct dining experiences as well as a private room located on the lower level that seats up to 40 guests. The ground floor bar and lounge where guests enter offers approachable dining in a casual setting and features a traditional Japanese Izakaya menu offering sushi, sashimi, noodle dishes and authentic "Robata" grilled dishes. Upstairs, guests can enjoy a menu that features Puck’s modern take on Asian cuisine. The Source is the recipient of many awards and accolades including #3 ranking on Washingtonian Magazine's "Top 100 Restaurants" list, "2008 New Restaurant of the Year" Award and "2008 Restaurant of the Year" from DC Magazine plus has received three stars from Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema.

"My wife always wanted to go to this restaurant because it was a Wolfgang Puck Restaurant and because there has been so much publicity around the name. It was not crowded on a Friday night ? Wonder why? Mostly out of town people. $150.00 for two and she had Snapper that was ok. My glazed duck was terrible and the worst that I have ever had.It was so dry it was impossible to even get it off of the bone. It was horrible.
There are so many GOOD QUALITY Small Restaurants in DC. Don't waste your money on the Wolfgang Puck name.I would assume that Wolfgang has not ate in this restaurant forever.Otherwise he would condemn it.
Over priced $150 can buy a GREAT DINNER for (4) at almost any good small restaurant in DC. Don't be fooled by the name"
