Chefs go all out to ring in the Year of the Pig
Restaurants around the Washington, D.C. region are ringing in the Chinese New Year in style. The Source by Wolfgang Puck will usher in the lunar new year with a feast on Tuesday, February 5. The upstairs at The Source will be transformed and feature a bar pouring Rhône wines, live chef action stations with different presentations of duck, and a whole pig roast from Joe Neuman, Sloppy Mama’s BBQ pitmaster. At Chiko, three different events will pay tribute to the Chinse New Year’s passage. Week-long festivities at Chiko include guest-chef-inspired meals by Chef Tim Ma of Kyirisan, Chef Javier Fernandez of Kuya Ja, and Chef Kevin Tien and Carlie Steiner from Himitsu. And at the Line DC Hotel’s Spoken English restaurant, there will be a five-course Chinese New Year tasting menu.
