Thanks for choosing Succotash PRIME. 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. 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.

A great birthday dinner. Our server, Yaya, was a hoot and treated us well. We had the Taste the South meal. Everything was delicious, particularly the chicken and waffles and, of course, the succotash. The drinks were great too. Particularly enjoyed the old fashioned.

I had high hopes for taking our out of town guests to Succotash for thanksgiving, but with their lackluster thanksgiving day menu charging $65/person for dry turkey and sides that I would be embarrassed to bring to any holiday dinner, I was both underwhelmed and overcharged. We were honestly embarrassed to take our friends here.

One of my favorite DC spots. However, the fish of the day was undercooked, couldn’t be eaten but didn’t want to bring attention to it as we were with another couple who we didn’t know well

Disappointing. Was over half an hour to get drinks, over an hour for entrees and all of the food was lukewarm. The server used COVID as an excuse for the delay, but I've dined at comparable DC restaurants recently with much better service and food that was served hot. Unlikely to return.

First timer and it was a great experience. Food and service was wonderful. The reality is there are some dishes you like and others you don’t, but it doesn’t diminish the experience. My only critique is that I wish they offered a selection of desserts for birthday celebrations; what was provided was a bit disappointing. A simple cupcake would have been sufficient.

Probably the best brunch we have had in a few years. The ambience was energetic, the service was excellent, the cocktails were ‘just right’, the coffee was hot and strong and the food was delicious. We will be back for sure!

We spent 2 hours at our table, practically being ignored by our server. She forgot a part of our entree and it took 40 minutes to get one drink. She repeatedly said “the kitchen/bar is busy”

Fun southern style decor and a really nice menu, with several great dishes and not expensive prices. Service was very good, professional -- waiting a little long for the check, but everything else was excellent. Food was very tasty, Bloody Mark was spicy and flavorful.

The ambience was great. We went on a Friday a night and there was live music. The food was excellent, and the fried catfish and the ribeye are definitely items to order again. The collard greens weren't my favorite, but they arrived exactly as described by the waiter--so no lost feelings there. Overall, dinner was fantastic and we had a great time!

Our first visit back since they reopened. The food and atmosphere are just as good as ever! The pimiento cheese and ham platter is practically a meal in itself, including 2 good-sized, excellent biscuits, crudites with ranch dressing, and pickled cauliflower with spicy red pepper slices. Love the variety of textures and flavors, and the cheese mix itself is hearty and a bit spicy too.

Having craved Succotash's tastes for over a year, I also had 2 different styles of deviled egg halves, and the one with pickled green tomatoes particularly sparkled with flavor in a creamy filling. My Bibb lettuce salad (yes, I got that too) featured very crisp and fresh greens and a bacon vinaigrette that turned lettuce into an indulgence. Although the goat's cheese on the salad was good, I'd leave it out so I could focus more on the greens and sauce, but maybe that's because I already had the pimiento cheese. And, hey, I took one biscuit home!

I wouldn’t recommend this place if it was the only restaurant in a 1000 mile radius. The chicken and waffles (their specialty )was over cooked and inedible, and they charged me for a drink and a side they never even served. Absolutely ridiculous, after we told them we were late and 1 friend walked away with out anything to eat they offered us nothing but a to go bag - which we already told them we were going to a concert.

Succotash is a very attractive restaurant, with a low noise level that permits conversation and pleasant live music. The food is quite good: the fried green tomatoes are delicately battered and nicely crunchy. The shrimp and grits is very flavorful, imaginatively spiced but not overly so.

I cut restaurant service slack because of the current difficulties in staffing them everywhere. Still, I have to note that the service at Succotash, although friendly, was mediocre. I stood more than five minutes at the unstaffed host desk, with passing waiters ignoring me, until I finally flagged one down to claim my reservation. Being alone, I chose to eat at the very nice bar, but my place had not been wiped clean from the previous customer; I ended up doing it myself.

I hope that these problems are temporary, as I’d gladly return to Succotash once they are resolved.
