Events: Wolfgang Puck Dinner at the Source

This sounds pretty good - too bad it is more expensive than the Inn at Little Washington, rivals City Zen and (even with the exchange rate) is just slightly under a meal at El Bulli. If you have been to the Source and had their $60 filet choice (which is I think is the highest in town) the price won't surprise you.

But the menu sound pretty good....and you get to see Wolfgang Puck, right? I've heard the restaurant has gone down hill since the opening staff left - so if you haven't been yet, you might want to go when Chef Puck is in the kitchen.


Wolfgang Puck to Host Grgich Hills Estate Wine Dinner at The Source

Wine and dine with Wolfgang Puck at The Source, the Master Chefs fine dining restaurant located at the Newseum. The celebrity chef and restaurant will host a special five-course dinner on Wednesday, November 12th at 6:30 pm paired with the exceptional organic and biodynamic wines of Napa Valley's Grgich Hills Estate. In addition to Chef Puck, Mike Grgich, founder of Grgich Hills Estate, also will attend the dinner.

Priced at $220 per person (inclusive of tax and tip), Chef Puck, along with The Source's Executive Chef Scott Drewno, will offer guests a range of Asian-inspired dishes including Shanghai lobster risotto with ginger and crispy spinach and Grilled Mongolian lamb chops with stir-fried eggplant and a mint-cilantro vinaigrette. Guests will start the dinner with an extensive selection of hors doeuvres such as Tuna Tartare in sesame-miso cones, Steak Tartare on crostini as well as Pucks famed Smoked Salmon Pizza. Ending the meal will be the signature Ginger Crhme Brulee with apricot marmalade and spice-caramel ice cream.
