As per the DC This Week blog, "Beginning today [July 21st], The Source by Wolfgang Puck is introducing a new Chinese banquet-style tasting menu available Monday through Thursday during regular dinner hours in the upstairs main dining room. Inspired by the traditional Chinese custom of friends and family convening over a family-style feast, The Source’s special prix-fixe menu is served in the same fashion and priced at $45 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity."
