The Source Welcomes Theater- and Game-Goers
Sports fans and movie-goers no longer have to settle for a dinner of hot dogs and popcorn. The Source by Wolfgang Puck will offer its new pre-event tasting menu for guests seeking an early dinner before catching a game at the Verizon Center, a movie at the Regal Gallery Place Stadium 14, or a show at the theater. The three-course prix-fixe menu will be offered in the upstairs dining room every Monday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. and is priced at $55 per person (excluding tax and gratuity). Executive chef Scott Drewno offers dishes such as a "6 Way" house-made dim sum tasting plate featuring lobster spring rolls, pork belly dumplings and sea scallop shu mai. For the main course, guests can choose between honey-soy broiled black cod with tempura asparagus and slow-cooked Kobe beef cheek "Hot Pot" with flowering greens and wild field mushrooms. The Source by Wolfgang Puck, Newseum, 575 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20001, 202-637-6100.
