From a press release:
“On Monday, August 3rd, The Source by Wolfgang Puck will close for two weeks to redesign the two-level restaurant space. The restaurant will reopen to the public at the end of August with a new look. During the last week of August and the first two weeks of September, Executive Chef Scott Drewno will change over his menus in order to offer guests a new lounge concept and dining room menu that will launch at the end of September.
The Source’s first floor bar and lounge will be completely renovated and will focus on offering guests a new menu of innovative takes on classic Chinese cuisine. Additions to the space include an open wok station and new seating throughout. Beginning in September, the upstairs dining room will become home to a hot pot table designed by Art Drauglis, offerings guests a traditional Chinese hot pot experience in a tasting menu format. Guests will experience a progression of dishes that they will cook themselves at the table in a spicy Sichuan peppercorn and Facing Heaven chili broth. Both the lounge renovation and dining room update are being done by Waldo Fernandez.
A roving tableside soup cart will also join the new dining room offerings, with updated versions of traditional Chinese soups. Chef Drewno will dedicate a section of the new menu to large format dishes, which will include his dining room signature, Chinese Lacquered Duckling, served two-ways.”
