We had the opportunity to experience The Source this past Monday afternoon for lunch on our mini vacation trip to Washington .
This trip was to explore the many Smithsonian’s and the monuments, as well as to take in a play at the Kennedy center
Our focus was also on food adventures. To that end we visited ( and will provide separate reviews) Rogue 24, The Source, Rasika ( Penn quarter), Zaytinya, and Zengo DC
First off, the room is beautiful. Lots of glass, great tableware, excellent flatware. The clientele was business centric, and I felt a bit out of place with just a shirt and jeans on.
What I really liked was the 3 course prix fixe menu option. Great deal which included a featured wine by the glass. Fortunately for me I was on my own time, and sampled more than one glass of a fine Pinot !
The food quality was outstanding, and I was surprised by the quantity on the plates. I was not expecting this for a prix fixe, and we were both delighted in the taste, presentation and amount.
The dumplings were outstanding, as was the pork belly. My wife’s fish was perfectly cooked and I did manage to get a forkful when she wasn’t looking !
Our server was excellent, the staff all appeared very professional. Not cold, but certainly not looking to chat at length.
We would definitely return to the Source, and next time I will look to book this for an evening meal
