Edward Lee makes his D.C. debut Monday with Succotash, a Southern and Asian-influenced restaurant opening at National Harbor.

The restaurant is serving up dishes like fried chicken, fried green tomatoes and smoked wings, but each dish has Lee's unique spin, often incorporating Asian sauces and ingredients. Cocktails are bourbon-focused, as well as some spins on Southern classics such as milk punch. Lee talks about his plans here; learn more about the menu here.

The restaurant was still finishing up final construction details today, and Eater wasn't given full access to the space. But here are some preview photos to get a sense of the design from partner Michael Reginbogin, which will incorporate focal points like murals and a big horse statue fashioned from pianos (not pictured). Status: Opening Monday. 186 Waterfront Street, National Harbor, Md.; website.
