Dining out for the Lunar New Year in Washington DC

The Lunar New Year is celebrated by billions of people throughout the world every February, and every year the millions of Asian Americans living here in America celebrate as well with colorful parades, fireworks and of course – lots of good food. You can find a list of locations throughout the city that will be performing lion dances and fireworks in this article. However, if you want to keep your celebration a bit more low-key and closer to home, we recommend you try one of our Washington DC Asian restaurants that are celebrating the holiday this coming month.

While Chinese take-out, dim sum, pho and other Asian delicacies are standard dinners for most Americans, you can make your meal a little special this week for the Lunar Near Year at this Washington D.C. restaurant.


CUT By Wolfgang Puck – On Thursday, Feb. 3, Chef Andrew Skala welcomes Chef Scott Drewno, Chef Danny Lee, Chef Mei Lin  and Chef Tetsu Yahagi into the CUT kitchen for a three-course, family-style dinner. Located inside Rosewood Washington, D.C , just 15 minutes away from your 1331 Maryland apartment, the experience will include a dim sum-inspired first course and shareable main course, abundant sides and dessert.

The special Lunar New Year menu will highlight classic Asian-inspired dishes and ingredients reimagined through the lens of modern American fine dining. Asian American fusion foods like scallion pull-apart bread served with whipped toasted chili butter, Maine lobster and black truffle cheung fun or wagyu beef and duck liver bao are all expected to be on the special menu.
