Edward Lee's first D.C. restaurant, Succotash, will debut in D.C. on Labor Day, Sept. 7. Lee and his business partners already shared several details with Eater about what to expect from the Southern and Asian-influenced restaurant. But here are some new details about what diners will be eating:

Beyond the aforementioned two types of fried chicken, Succotash will feature a burger topped with pimento cheese and bacon jam, a 20 oz ribeye with cheesy grits and sesame-chile butter, fried green tomatoes with goat cheese and peaches, skillet cornbread, Rappahannock oysters with watermelon mignonette and dry-rubbed chicken wings with white barbecue sauce.

Another option: Succotash will feature a "Taste the South" tasting menu available for groups of four or more ($39 for adults, $18 for kids). It will involve shareable appetizers, corn bread, fried chicken, ribs, shrimp and grits, sides and a dessert.

Succotash will first open for dinner, with other meals coming in the following weeks.
