KNEAD Hospitality + Design expands on the success of its premier restaurant SUCCOTASH in National Harbor, Maryland, with plans to open a flagship location in Washington, D.C.’s dynamic Penn Quarter. Slated to open in the spring of 2017, Succotash DC will take root in Washington’s historic Equitable Bank Building at 915 F Street NW. KNEAD Hospitality + Design proudly continues their partnership with renowned chef and SUCCOTASH’s Culinary Director, Edward Lee, together celebrating a successful first year for the first location as the concept grows to include a second.
KNEAD Hospitality + Design looks to fully explore the charm and sophistication of SUCCOTASH in the 9,000-square-foot home in downtown Washington, complete with three floors and seating capacity for over 350 guests. KNEAD Hospitality + Design will work to preserve the Equitable Bank Building’s original elements, as one of DC Preservation League’s 15 designated historic interior sites in the District of Columbia. SUCCOTASH’s design will honor the building’s original aesthetic, with hints of Greek revival architecture and soaring ceilings, while introducing grand touches evocative of late southern architecture. The new design will enhance its historic declaration, as its previous incarnations were popular clubs The Fifth Column and Platinum.
“As residents of DC, our goal was to open a flagship SUCCOTASH restaurant here, building on the success at National Harbor,” says Michael Reginbogin and Jason Berry, partners and co-founders at KNEAD Hospitality + Design. “We found an amazing historic space in an ideal location, combined with the incomparable talent of Chef Edward Lee, we aim to offer D.C. an inspired take on Southern fare in a memorable setting designed to awaken the senses.”
SUCCOTASH DC’s menu will feature favorites from their National Harbor location as well as new selections reflective of D.C. tastes. In addition to offering lunch and dinner service, plans call to add brunch after SUCCOTASH’s initial opening. An equally impressive bar program is slated to complement Succotash DC’s culinary offerings, featuring over 200 varieties of whiskey and an expansive wine program.
SUCCOTASH DC will be thoughtfully conceptualized to welcome in intimate groups or large numbers of guests, featuring a Chef’s table, multiple bars, and flexible private dining options. With three private and semi private dining spaces that can accommodate parties of up to 350 guests, SUCCOTASH DC is expected to become an in-demand venue for the numerous social and business events that Washington welcomes.
