Succotash - Penn Quarter DC
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.

Excellent service and great food. Had 2 appetizers with drinks ( pimento cheese/ham board and chicken and biscuits). Both were wonderful. Plan to return before end of our trip for dinner.
The food for restaurant week was underwhelming to say the least. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
My experience was not worth the money spent. The worst part was when I went to the restroom to wash my hands and couldnt because there was no soap. But then noticed the sign staying that employees must wash there hands...How?
Everything was delicious and well seasoned.
We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was fantastic and the food was great! I will go back!!!
Took my Mom for dinner during restaurant week and she loved it!
The service was excellent from the host to the busboy the waiters, bar tender and manager. But the food was not even average. Went during restaurant week but ordered from the menu. I thought it was Southern comfort food. It is not, I think the chef is Korean so it’s that take on Southern comfort food. Which is okay, if that was what you were looking for. The flavors to not mesh well to our party.
My new favorite restaurant - the space itself is beautiful historic Washington. The service, food and drink were perfect. Delicious recipes done well. The value was great!
Great service. We did the taste of the south brunch menu. Very tasty. Will be back for more.
Nice atmosphere and good food, but they completely forgot about our table. Waited 45 minutes with no service and had to flag down a waiter to put in our drink order. By the time we got drinks it’d been about an hour since we sat down. However, it was busy that day. Haven’t had problems with service in the past. Maybe best to avoid on Sundays.
Succotash was phenomenal! We had excellent and prompt service. We enjoyed several starters and cocktails to start the meal. Everything from chicken and waffles to lobster Benedict was outstanding. We will be back!
Amazing food! Great tasting menu and very friendly service!
This was our first visit to Succotash. As we often do, we went for Restaurant Week. Unlike many of the other places we tried, their RW menu was something of a modified tasting menu containing many of their "greatest hits." It was a great introduction to their good and gave us an opportunity to try a lot of different things. We both came away with some new favorites -- for me it was the smoked chicken wings, which I would not have ordered normally. It was also an excellent value, even for RW. We will definitely go back.
Seating was crowded. Food was too spicy, without warning from menu or server. Promised coffee refills never came. Noise level was too loud, not energetic. Digestive system was totally upset that evening and the day after. Will not go back.
They had tasty offerings for restaurant week. It was good, except the collard greens tasted off a little bit. My favorite was the chicken and waffles! It gets crowded for weekend brunch so I would recommend making a reservation ahead of time. It also took a while for the bartender to make my mimosa.
Went for DC restaurant week. Everything from what was suppose to be hot appetizers and hot entrees were either cold or like warm. Granted it was a Saturday at 12pm so the place was busy but no one wants to eat cold food. The only reason my table didn’t return the food was because it took a very long time for them to bring each course out, 15-20 minutes between each course. What could of been an 1.5 hour long brunch (as the portion sizes for small for the brunch family style) turned into 2.5 hours. Overall, I think they were having a bad day and will return for maybe happy hour.
We came to Succotash this year for restaurant week because we think they have the best deal by far! It was amazing last year and just as delicious this year. Meal was superb - wings as always are a hit, fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, catfish... and the drinks were also well made. Thanks for taking care of us!!
Great building, good food and service, convenient access to theaters. Not your run of the mill restaurant...this one is special!
Probably one of the best restaurants I have dined at. Staff was excellent, and the food was absolutely wonderful. Would definitely recommend.
We ordered the restaurant week menu. I know you are saying what did we expect....its restaurant week. However, the place was less than half full, and the menu was only offered family style, no choices. Nonetheless, it took over an hour to see our entree....the staff was apologetic, but still, not acceptable for a workday lunch. And I get that they are a southern restaurant, but every single thing on the restaurant week menu was fried except dessert.
We loved our experience at Succotash this evening! Absolutely delicious, and great waitstaff!
Meh meh meh. Good waitress.
Four of us went to lunch at Succotash during Restaurant Week. We ordered the Restaurant Week menu and it was served family style. The table received two appetizers, two entrees, two sides and one dessert, which we shared. When you order the Restaurant Week menu, there are no decisions. The whole table gets the whole menu as described in the previous sentence. It gave us a chance to do a menu "tasting" of fried green tomatoes, smoked chicken, catfish, fried chicken with waffles, collard greens, etc. All of the dishes were tasty and freshly prepared. I asked for a "quiet" table and they were very accommodating. the decor is lovely there. The service was outstanding! I would definitely recommend Succotash!
Excellent menu and food. I was reluctant to order salmon given the other menu choices but am glad I did. Terrific combination of flavors. The citrus salad is a must.
Winter Restaurant Week
We went for restaurant week and I think the volume of customers overwhelmed them as the spacing of the food delivery was off. I stood at the check in for 5 minutes and despite there being two employees there nothing was said to me. Once I asked I was seated promptly but then we waiting 10 minutes for our server to show up. It took 30 minutes for the 1st appetizer to arrive (restaurant week is family style) and an additional 30 minutes before the second set of appetizers. the delivery of the entrees and desert were spot on. Our server was excellent as he did check on us and told us the kitchen was backed up. The food itself was excellent and we got a huge amount. I'll most likely be back to try them again and hopefully the spacing of the food delivery will be better.
This was our first visit to Succotash and it did not disappoint. We tried the Taste of the South menu and it was fantastic. It was a fantastic value given the amount and type of food offered. The only complaint we had was that the collard greens, kimchi and country ham dish was exceptionally salty, we could not finish it.
I am not sure if this was normal or just an off batch. But the rest of the food was phenomenal, the service fantastic, cocktails were very well done, and the ambiance is amazing. We will definitely be going back for special occasions.
Wow! it was a great food experience. We loved the delicious food and the service was outstanding. Our group was seated in a renovated bank vault which was private and nice. Thank you for a birthday experience to remember.
I went during lunch for restaurant week. I enjoyed the variety in their RW offerings (family/tapas style). Everything was good but the fried green tomato salad and catfish were both overdressed. The waffle was pleasantly memorable and the mini pecan pie with the orange whipped cream was the perfect bite at the end.
Our first time at Succotash. We were seated promptly but at a table in the bar area. The restaurant was full and very loud. My husband had the ribs and he said they were very good. I had the pulled mushroom BBQ, very tasty. Wires were crossed 2x, first the incorrect salad was served to me but very apologetic about it. Second, while having our entree, a server brought us someone else’s dessert. Again, it was very full and I think too much going on without some concentration. We would return, but would add a note not to be placed in the bar area. The building itself is beautiful and great location.
I have come to expect great stuff from Chef Edward Lee and this is solidly good. There are some wonderful items on the
Menu and the service is outstanding.
From entry to exit this restaurant is amazing. Beautifully restored building tastefully decorated. The server was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional...the meal; outstanding. Collard greens with kimchi...Yum!!! We can't wait to come back.
Great service, great food – highly recommend. Even brought out complementary dessert for my wife’s birthday.
This is my favorite brunch place!
Overall good food and table service. I’d skip the corn bread next time as it was dry and cold. Sitting upstairs wasn’t ideal. It’s very cold, lacks ambience, and you’re stuck looking at a very bright pink fluorescent Mr. Lee’s sign inside the room. Each table is also right next to a service station with glasses etc., so you always feel like you’re stuck in the staff part of the restaurant.
Our waiter was having an off-night, but other than that the place was incredibly impressive. Can’t wait to go back.
They accommodated two groups, five and six. Food and cocktails were outstanding. Amazing space and great service.
The space was well designed. Great architecture, details and a lovely restaurant.
The menu was very interesting and the food was great. The portions are a fairly large size, service was wonderful and overall I had a very nice lunch.
Very disappointed after hearing lots of good things. The restaurant has a great look but the great stopped there. I ordered the tasting menu for two and while the food was ok, the servers seemed annoyed and disinterested. As each part of the tasting menu came out of the kitchen it was dropped on the table with no explanation or definition nor was food served to the people at the table. When the salad came out we asked for serving utensils, this seemed to be a hard question but eventually I was brought an additional fork & knife. At this point I could only laugh. The meal progressed that way with out definition of the courses or any service other than not having to pick it up from the kitchen myself. I will give Succotash a pass as for having a bad night as I was certainly the last table on a slow night (I sat down at 8PM), and with the construction on F Street I am sure that is not enhancing business.
Great location, Great ambiance and fantastic chicken!
