Ah, what riches await the hungry lounge-goer at Wolfgang Puck’s gleaming hot spot in the Newseum. Executive chef Scott Drewno serves an izakaya menu that includes salty-sweet, crisp chicken wings doused in General Tso’s chili sauce, rich and spongy pork-belly bao buns, and our favorite selection of dumplings in the area. Weekdays, a 4-to-6 happy hour lets you choose three of these spectacular small plates for $22. Insider tip: Leave the hoodies and jeans at home—the Source attracts a very flashy crowd.
