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.

The waitress seemed overwhelmed. The kitchen forgot my food order, so I had to wait an additional 20 more minutes for my food.

We attended for a 2:00 Sunday brunch. The food was delicious however the service was unbelievably slow (two hours for a pre set menu). There was no notice by the waiter, servers, or menu of why there was a delay. It seemed the whole restaurant was running slowly too.

The drinks are great. I loved the milk punch. The rest of the table enjoyed a pitcher of Belle's punch. The food was amazing, though there are limited options for vegans. Service was slow.

Food is fabulous. The culinary combinations are like none other. It’s one of those places you will think about how good it was long after you leave.

My husband and I showed up with our 6yo son (baby sitter fell through). They were very accommodating getting us a table for 3. We didn't have to wait longer and the manager brought us two complementary glasses of champagne. Our food was delish.😀

Great space. Feels like you’re in Charleston and not DC. Service was great and food was inventive and delicious. The hummingbird cake was so good! Highly recommend the catfish, too. Only (small) complaint was that the restaurant was really cold!

Valentines Day lunch. Sat in the bar area and the bartender waited on our table. He was awesome. Knowledgeable, friendly, knew the menu and offered great advice on cocktails. Old fashion was perfect.

Noise level was a bit high in the bar, but could still have a conversation.

Southern classics, shrimp & grits, hush puppies, fried chicken and waffles were spot on.

Was my birthday and they did a great job of doing something special for us. The hummingbird pie they brought out for us dessert was great.

Overall, great experience and would go again. My friend's salmon was a bit underdone (almost cold in the middle) and the margarita I had amounted to one large ice cube with a side of 3 margarita shots. However, the ambiance and service were excellent, and the drinks and food still very good!

This was our first time to Succotash in DC. It's a great place for couples, or a group of four. Charming decor, perfect for Sunday brunch or late night date.

Deviled eggs were just okay, drinks were passable and overpriced. Fried chicken was delicious, crispy and juicy. Fried green tomato salad is great. Chicken and gravy over biscuits was good. Greens were a bit tough and the kimchi really stood out. Opt for the salad instead.

We'll try it again for brunch sometime.

Only downside was having our server also be the bar tender so she wasn’t as tentative as we hoped!

Very good food and above-average service. We sat in the relatively quieter upstairs area but were practically on top of those at the next tables. The noise level was high,making conversation difficult.

Nice Autumn Salad, too much bread with the fried oysters, halibut was kept under the hot light too long with a skin on the etouffee and flesh a bit overdone, catfish good.

Excellent food & service. Allowed our large group to order off the menu instead of a preset and were very accommodating. The restaurant decor/ambiance is very cool. The food presentation is outstanding along with the taste! I can't wait to come back!

Was a little skeptical as fried chicken on waffles is definitely not my taste. Stuck to the vegetarian options and was throughly impressed. The menu has options for everyone. The mint julep ice cream was delicious!

First impression from the entrance - wow! Architecture is beautiful - large pillars, marble, high ceilings, open second level and open, airy feel with lots of natural light - beautiful! The food was deliciously southern, and the presentation was nice. My girlfriends and I went for brunch and started with Bloody Mary’s and deviled eggs - both were very good. I had the lobster Benedict as my entree and that too, was yummy. I only wish they offered bottomless mimosas - we would’ve stayed longer! I did notice their wide selection of Whiskeys and they even offer flights. So I may be going back to try that on another occasion.

Came here for brunch on a Saturday. Chicken and waffles was delicious, hot and crispy chicken skin, waffles were crisp on the outside and soft inside. Also got the bourbon frost - frozen pomegranate and cranberry cocktail - it was delicious! One star off because service was a bit slow, it probably took 20 min to put in our order and another 20 to receive our dishes. Otherwise the staff were friendly and professional. I would definitely be back to try some other dishes but hope the service would be better.

We had a wonderful Saturday lunch. The venue is lovely and the food was outstanding. The menu looked so appetizing that we had difficulty deciding what to order; definitely worth a trip back to try additional menu items. Service was a bit slow to start, but was very attentive overall.

Really enjoyed this spot for brunch. Interesting menu of southern style food with biscuits, gravy, and the like. I couldn't pick on so ordered the hangover meal with a variety of items served in a skilled. Really enjoyed warm potato salad, biscuit, gravy, pork, and eggs. My friend enjoyed the salmon. We tried a few of their tasty brunch cocktails, which were interesting combinations. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and decor of this place and will return.

Although a bit pricey for an everyday luncheon choice, for a special outing, i would highly recommend it. the food was superb and the space is just beautiful. the hummingbird cake is out of this world. one piece, shared by two people is a decadent portion.

I had the chicken and waffles. The chicken was overcooked and dry. The waffle was also dry. Just based on my meal I wouldn’t return although others with me enjoyed their meals. Service was sporadic. Big thumbs up for the whisky sour cocktail. It was delicious!

While visiting the DC office of my company, I treated three of my team to lunch. We had a cozy booth toward the back of the restaurant which gave us privacy and a good atmosphere in which to talk easily while being able to people watch from our table. The food was all delicious. One heads-up: the chicken and dumplings is not your traditional, comfort food at all. The dumplings were tasty but very tiny and the chicken was tender. Lots of vegetable filled out the plate. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch.

Food took too long to come out. Sides were cold but protein was hot.
