It might seem ironic that some of DC’s best dim sum is in a
high-end Wolfgang Puck restaurant not far from Chinatown. You’ll find it
in the sleek spot’s laid-back, classic-rock-playing lounge, and in
fine-dining terms it’s a deal—$32 buys five small plates (enough for two
to share), while $42 brings eight. Stick to dim sum classics: pillowy bao
enfolding shiny-skinned duck, pork-belly pot stickers, and dan-dan
noodles. We forgo tea for such easy-drinking cocktails as a crisp Pimm’s
Cup and a nicely spicy Bloody Mary. Saturday 11:30 to 3.
