A progressive perspective of classic Southern favorites. James Beard Award nominee Edward Lee brings his Korean roots and Southern repertoire to a soulful Southern menu.

SUCCOTASH is named after the classic dish that has been a longstanding staple of the Southern table. While many know “Succotash” when they see it, the dish has been interpreted, modified and passed from generation to generation for centuries. While Succotash between families will share similarities, each family’s recipe is deeply personal and reminiscent of those special suppers that brings kin together. Our “Succotash” is special to us and we invite you to experience the South from our point of view.

Incredibly impressed! The ambiance is stunning, which I knew was going to be the case before attending, what I didn’t expect was the food quality! Best brunch I’ve had in DC! Plus the experience blew away my parents who were visiting! Will go again 100%.

Beautiful ambience. I can’t get over the layers of flavor in the French toast. I’m from the South and it’s not often we find a restaurant in the DC area which rivals my family’s cooking. The decor is gorgeous!

The food was delicious. The crab cake salad was outstanding. It was fresh and delicious. The succotash and salmon was very good. The hummingbird cake was a little dense and heavy compared to others that I have either made or had at other restaurants. I will definitely go back for another meal.

This restaurant did not disappoint! I wish I could have tried just about everything on their brunch menu. Their appetizers were gorgeous and my whole family loved them: the crab cake, sticky bun, and beet and goats cheese salad were excellent! The lobster Benedict was delicious, especially served with the warm potato salad. Also you should get the chicken and waffles! The pulled pork was a lovely sandwich! Go and enjoy the beautiful decor and yummy food!

Fabulous food: fried green tomato salad, fried chicken & waffle, BBQ ribs, side of fries and chocolate waffle & chocolate pecan tart for desserts. Fun atmosphere, but loud. From hostess to server, great interactions and service. They also serve fun cocktails and creative non-alcoholic options. Not inexpensive, but portions are generous-dad and daughter shared the chicken & waffle and we all shared the ribs. We would highly recommend and return again, and again, and again.

I got the chicken and waffles and my friend had the salmon with the dirty rice (rice was slightly under seasoned). Overall it was a wonderful experience. I will be going back again soon!

Great food and service. The price was a little bit more than anticipated. The cocktails probably pushed it over. But considering everything was wonderfully prepared... I am good with the $126 tab.

When I first visited for happy hour I loved it and that’s why I returned for a birthday dinner. The portion for the crab salad on a bed off lettuce was misleading. My daughter then decided to order a different dish, which was the shrimp and grits. She was disappointed again. She picked thru it which was a waste of $25. The manager never came out to see why food was returned to the kitchen. However, the waitress was wonderful. I may return for happy hour, but dinner I can’t recommend.

The brunch menu was expansive. It had southern and Korean influences. The deviled eggs were a favorite snack of mine- light and filling. The food in general needed a bit more of a kick to them- like pepper or Old Bay. We ordered the Shrimp and Grits as well as the Biscuits and Gravy. The two bloody Mary's offered on the menu were superb, preferred the Southern one with the bourbon. 10/10 would recommend for a casual but scrumptious brunch in Penn Quarter.

I had never been to Succotash so I was excited to dine there. We had made reservations online and were a bit early, so we sat at the bar and ordered drinks. Once our table was ready, our hostess came to get us and we were seated at a nice booth. We ordered all the snacks, ha ha. I had the salmon and my date had the steak salad. The food was delicious and our waiter SAS awesome!! Overall, I had a good experience. It was a bit too noisy, but it's DC, and the place was busy. I'd recommend it to friends.

We were actually disappointed in Succotash, after hearing all the rave reviews. The one vegetarian at the table had the one vegetarian dish — which has a rather bland, watery rice dish. The smothered chicken was doused in an odd sweet sauce. Spice/heat meters aren’t revealed in the menu so an otherwise delicious halibut was overwhelmed by the etouffe. Delicious appetizers, salads, and snacks.

We were 13 minutes late and hostess very rude, i honestly thought we were on time and reservation was earlier as I must have hit wrong time. She did recover and seat us within 6-7 minutes. The rest was lovely and all other staff excellent, food very nice, great drinks & desserts particularly extraordinary!

Awesome place, great food. Normally when a party is not all there you have to wait, half our party was stuck in traffic and they seated us so we could wait and order drinks. Great service.
