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.

    Crazy loud inside. But cool atmosphere and super fun menu. Our service was fairly poor. One of our dishes was forgotten and even after reminding the servers twice it came late and was clearly rushed bc it was hard and uncooked. Forgot my daughters drink and the ice cream that came with her kids meal. Even after waitress made a show of saying I’ll go get that now. Frustrating. Food was good but super salty. Won’t go back.

    It was good and all but they couldn’t get steak temp right at all. We asked for medium steak and it came out rare we asked to to be redone they brought it back medium rare. Either it was miscommunication or something but that put a damper to dinner

    The place is beautiful, but I don’t think it’s worth it. The service was very poor. Our server continuously complained about the kitchen, and the bar. If they were having issues, I would have probably prefer that they let me know about the delay rather than coming to the table, interrupting the conversation and complaining every 5 minutes. Here some specific issues: - An item was offered that was not available (frozen honey). They said “it’s frozen but gives us some time” Then said “no, we don’t have honey available. Can we replace it with sugar?” (I said ok). I used the sugar, then they brought the honey. - Appetizers (server told us that the kitchen burned the appetizer, chef was upset) and main course all came at the same time. - Wrong food was delivered to our table. 1 out of 3 plates were correct. More wait time. - Additional drinks that were not ordered were brought to our table. - With the excuse that the bar was very busy, hot tea was brought after the drinks and the food was finally on the table. - Appetizers were dried.

    Greeted warmly and promptly and server gave suggestions for zero proof and other menu offerings. Crab cakes and corn cakes, fried chicken and fried tomato salad yummy. Succoatash extremely salty. Took forever for entrees, but manager very apologetic. Took forever to get bourbon on rocks. Very, very noisy. We were just under balcony which seemed to have particular acoustics that bounced a table 20 feet away straight to ours.

    Extremely loud live music which led to a poor dining experience because you could barely hear the people you were with or your server, and the food was mediocre. I ordered the Apple Cider ribs and they had barely any meat on it which was extremely frustrating given the price. Overall the price of the food wasn’t really worth what you got.

    The restaurant is in a prime DC location. The decor is excellent. The food is awful. We went there after Sunday service for brunch. We ordered the lobster Benedict. The lobster tasted like fishy sawdust. It was not fresh and it seemed like it had been reheated and stored in the refrigerator several times. The hollandaise sauce tasted like runny mayonnaise-completely lacking any kind of acidity. Was that an English muffin or a biscuit? What ever it was it was unrecognizable because it was so soggy it was nauseating. And there was a brown disgusting 🤢 mountain of potatoes… and wilted garnish. What a waste of good real estate. Don’t go there. I wouldn’t.

    Beautiful meal and beautiful service. Such an interesting combination of flavors with something unexpected in every dish. Taste the South was a great way to try a lot of dishes. You know you’ve had a great meal when you’re still thinking about it the next day. It’s also a gorgeous space and the service was attentive, impeccable and generous. It’s been awhile since we’ve enjoyed a meal out so much. We’ll be back.

    Service could use improvement on all of the basics. I expected more from an Edward Lee restaurant. We had deviled eggs, corn cakes, hush puppies, wine, fried chicken and waffles, mac and cheese, filet mignon, hummingbird cake. The steak was undercooked, unevenly cooked, bad sauces, and tasted horrible. All of the southern inspired food was delicious. So, don’t order steak. :)

    Horrific service. After not being greeted or watered for over 5 minutes, our waitress dumped an entire carafe of water on my leg/the floor. We ordered taste of the south (a chef's tasting that was delicious). Our cocktails came halfway though our app course. The place was 25 percent capacity. Our entrees came with the wrong sides which would have been an easy fix if our table had been touched within 30 minutes of the course dropping. It wasn't. After asking for correct sides we waited another 20 minutes for them to appear, and another 30 for them to be cleared while we nursed our second coctails even though our entrees were long gone. I asked for coffee as we waited for dessert. Cue another 30 minute wait for the dessert course, and somehow my coffee was served halfway through the dessert course. We quietly assumed that at least one round of drinks would be comped after this comedy of errors only to be greeted by the full 200+ bill. I tipped the full amount and left. 0/10 would not recommend.

    We went early evening (6pm) on a Sunday. The bar was full as were the tables closest to the bar, where we were seated. I didn't notice the rest of the seats, but it was noisy. We were given menus asked immediately what we wanted to drink and when we said we needed a bit of time to decide, our waiter vanished. We had to ask a host to find our waiter so we could order. He finally took our order and our appetizer arrived promptly, but our drinks didn't. It took 40 minutes and 2 additional asks to get our drinks and one of them was a draft beer! The waiter apologized and said the drinks were on the house. When we finally got our check, the drinks were still there. We had to ask again about them. And by then, the bar and the tables around us were mostly empty. The food was good, but the service was very sub-par. I probably won't go back.

    We got to Succotash at 3:30 and did not sit down until 4:00. Due to a shift change we did not have a server when asked we were told are server was coming back from break so another server took our appetizer and drink orders. We order food with our “server” 30 min laters she tells us that our food was never put in…. while waiting for our food we ask a passing manager to order shots he “puts it in” they came 38 min later after reminding them! When we found out our food was not put in we had to retell our order to our server! Spent my day from 3:30 to 6:45 when we left in Succotash and all we got for our troubles was 4 dollar deviled eggs, a round of shots we ordered but took 38 min, and cake which was actually tasty! 10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND and before you ask yes were were sweet to our server and still tipped!

    We had the restaurant week Southern Taste Menu, which we didn't understand at first was just as described, a taste of everything listed except the choice between the watermelon and peanuts (which sounded great) and the collards. Since we had a lot of watermelon at home, we ordered the collards, with some trepidation. They, like everything else, were delectable, cooked to perfection. We had a nice and attentive server staff upstairs and a pleasant visit.

    I went with a party of four for summer Resturant week to succotash. Honestly one of my favorite restaurants in the city after this first meal! We did the family style meal and the potions were perfect! The chicken and waffles were to die for and that’s coming from a southerner! Will be going back for sure!
