Succotash PRIME is a progressive perspective of classic Southern favorites. James Beard Award winner Edward Lee brings his Korean roots and Southern repertoire to a soulful Southern Steakhouse 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. Our “Succotash” is special to us and we invite you to experience the South from our point of view.

As of 1/15/22 and inline with the Washington DC vaccine mandate, we require proof of vaccination for every guest dining inside over the age of 12. For guests 18 and older, make sure to provide a valid photo ID. Medical and religious exemptions are accepted with a negative COVID test from the past 24 hours.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Love succotash, but the food was slightly underwhelming compared to last time. I think the biggest factor was our table was in the corner, right under the heater, which made the air dry and affected the taste of the food.

Hostess was rude right when we walked in. We were seated at a very small table in the middle of traffic even though there were many larger tables open. Waitress was lovely, but it took forever for drinks and apps to come. When they did, the entree arrived immediately. This was uncomfortable because we were at such a small table. The food was disappointing.

We were celebrating my 50th birthday and our 26th wedding anniversary. The staff was amazing. Our server was one of the best I ever had. The menu was so unique and creative. We started with deviled eggs for an appetizer, 2 each with the bacon jam and 2 with the pickled tomatoes. I had the dry aged ribeye steak that was the prepared perfectly in the smoker and the collard greens with ham and kimchi. My wife had the pimento cheese burger. We both loved our meals. Additionally, I had some of their signature drinks. I had the campfire bourbon drink, which was a cider drink with bourbon and a cinnamon stick, the old fashioned with smoked honey and the frost drink from the holiday menu. We finished the night off by splitting Nana’s banana pudding, and our server graciously added a dessert sampler that included the bourbon chocolate pecan pie with the orange whipped cream. I can’t wait to eat here again.

Very Disappointed in Christmas experience.
In a relatively slow period of time, we were sat by the bathroom and had to hear the air blowers every few minutes. Christmas menu was the reason I made a reservation for 6 for Christmas Day supper. It was not very busy at 3 pm, but it still took 15 minutes to be properly greeted and drink orders taken. Another 15-20 to order appetizers. When I asked to see the Christmas menu the server told us they ran out of lobster. That must have been their reason to NOT hand out the Christmas menu at all. I asked several times to see the menu and he kept repeating the specials verbally. This was not helpful and was quite frustrating. I chose this restaurant for the Christmas menu and they ran out of one of 2 entree options by 3 pm then pull the menu? The oysters were good, but the fried green tomatoes were covered in salad on top making them soggy. The Servers changed out and that was never explained or properly introduced, tomahawk was undercooked and very fatty cut, sauces not explained which was which, we were never asked if the drinks and food were to our liking. It was a very amateurish and disappointing holiday experience that I paid a lot for. I won’t be back.

The shrimp and grits were delicious. The cesar salad was very pretty and tasty, but a bit too much vinegar in the dressing. Dining mates loved the fried chicken and the oysters. We sat at one of the banquettes with chairs placed on the outside for two of the four in our party. The chairs were a bit awkwardly placed, seeing to be in the middle of walkway aisles, and the table was a bit small for four people. Overall, it was a lovely evening and we will definitely go again.

We had a great time at Succotash for brunch! Everything was flavorful and hand-made. Even the ketchup had a nice gochujang kick! You can really feel the unique ambiance and attention to detail. Feels like a quintessential DC restaurant with a unique southern feel. We will definitely be returning!

Wanted to check out succotash largely for the ambiance (gorgeous!) but the food and service took the experience to the top level. Typical southern food that you might dismiss because it’s “been done” has unexpected surprises, and the team makes sure you have everything you need while leaving you smiling. Definitely recommend the Taste of the South for a good mix of fan favorites.

Foodies beware - the food is awful at this place! I cannot understand the high reviews (mid-west tourists who think Applebees is edible?). It is a restaurant created by a design group called Knead. Thus, it's a perfect 'gramable space for taking selfies to post, but otherwise bad food at high prices. They don't know how to make cornbread, gross dry little mini-muffin things. We had the salmon with the largest piece of broccolini I've ever seen, which was served cold and extra bitter & pork ribs (meh) served between disgusting mushy wet dirty rice and topped with "creamy slaw" (a bitter crunchy mess mixed in with BBQ sauce). Wouldn't have expected the food to be this bad. Spare yourself and eat elsewhere!
