About the Rammys

The Source by Wolfgang Puck is the first fine dining restaurant in the nation’s capital headlined by Chef Wolfgang Puck. Designed by EDG, the three-level restaurant is the signature dining experience at the Newseum. The Source by Wolfgang Puck 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 with a traditional Japanese Izakaya menu. Upstairs, guests can enjoy a menu with contemporary interpretations of Asian dishes. The modern aesthetic design boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that line the restaurant and a two-story glass wine wall that holds more than 2,000 bottles of the restaurant’s impressive collection.

The Source by Wolfgang Puck is the recipient of many awards and accolades including #3 ranking on Washingtonian Magazine’s “Top 100 Restaurants,” three stars from the Washington Post, plus three awards from the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington including “2011 Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year,” “2010 Chef of the Year,” and “2008 New Restaurant of the Year.”
