Have You Tried the Chicken and Waffles at Succotash?

When James Beard award-winning chef Edward Lee started cooking at Succotash in Penn Quarter, the entire DC restaurant scene took notice. More recently, the team behind Succotash has brought its unique combination of classic Southern dishes with Korean flair to the National Harbor. Loyal customers of the original spot will tell you that the new space is gorgeous, with expanded seating options on the outdoor patio and at the bar, as well as a chic DC vibe without the hassle and traffic of a trip into the heart of the city. 

Yelpers say that whether it’s brunch, lunch, or late night, you cannot go wrong with the kitchen’s signature chicken and waffles, but don’t forget there are plenty of other options on the menu, too. For the full experience, go for the “Taste the South” family style menu, with six courses of classic dishes like cornbread, fried green tomatoes, fried catfish, mac and cheese, and pecan pie.
