Located in the modern building on Pennsylvania Avenue just around the corner from the White House and the United States Capitol, Newseum's seven levels of interactive galleries explain, defend, and promote free expression and the First Amendment's five freedoms: freedom of speech, religion, press, petition, and assembly. The museum's restaurant The Source is a must-stop, either before you embark on exploring the war history or after, to recover from learning about the horrors of war.
This elegant, beautifully furnished modern restaurant by celebrated Chef Wolfgang Puck consists of a lively, casual bar and lounge on one level, a sophisticated main dining room on another level, and a private dining space underground. The menu is the stuff of foodies' dreams and you might never advance any further than the appetizers, such as crispy suckling pig with pear puree and pickled cipollini with sweet bean sauce or spicy tuna tartare with sesame-miso cones, pickled ginger, shaved bonito, and tobiko. A two-story glass wine wall holds over 2,000 bottles from the restaurant's collection.
