The Source
© Worn Creative,

Plenty of celebrity chefs have staked a claim in Washington in recent years, but few have done it as well as Wolfgang Puck. The Source, located adjacent to the Newseum, feels less like an absentee-chef outpost and more like a vibrant part of the city, thanks to executive chef Scott Drewno and an eclectic mix of diners, from city-dwelling twentysomethings to tourists to famous TV talking heads. If fine dining is on the agenda, book a table in the elegant and sleek upstairs dining room for Drewno’s well-executed menu of modern Asian fare. Or stick to the more casual downstairs bar and lounge for delicious dumplings, udon noodles and mini banh mi.
