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.

"Met a friend who had the thai chicken salad. I had eaten nearly everything on the menu so I tried the pastrami gone Korean. Delicious just enough and it comes in the little steam basket. Tender and tasty. The side dish of hot cucumbers was a bit much for me. The chef sent over a special treat of a cone of tuna sushi. These little gifts are what makes The Source special and wonderful and adds to the reason why it is my go-to in this neighborhood."

"The chef gave.a complimentary 5 onion soup that was phenomenal. A light not quite cream broth with layers of flavor and a beautiful dumpling in the bottom and beautiful drops of green oil on top. My friend had the duck which was redolent with curry aroma and tast. I wagyu burgered and it was delicious as always"

Four years after Celebrity Chef Art Smith opened Art and Soul, the Capitol Hill restaurant underwent a refresh and re-opened in late February 2013. In addition to beautiful herringbone wood floors, textured walls, and unique artwork, you'll also enjoy an exciting new menu. Our approach is driven by our chefs’ Southern roots. We serve simple honest food and partner with like-minded farmers, artisans and growers to provide products that are sustainably and responsibly sourced, whenever possible. <br /><br />With celebrated two-time James Beard award winning Chef Art Smith as chef/owner, this Capitol Hill restaurant has received national and local acclaim for its "Food for the Soul" - modern regional cuisine with southern accents.

"I love Art and Soul. Food is consistently very tasty. I had the ribs which are not my fav in the area but are quite good with a distinct dry rub taste and molasses based sauce that is sweet. They have changed the baby cakes and red velvet still the best. My dining partner had the beet salad which is great."
