LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Chef Edward Lee is expanding his empire again. 

A sign announced the opening of a second location of the restaurant Succotash in the Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington, D.C.  The concept is already a hit in the National Harbor area of Baltimore, Maryland, where the first location opened in 2015. 

Succotash focuses on updates of southern classics with Lee's Korean roots. Among the menu favorites are dishes like shrimp n’grits, fried chicken & waffles, kimchi collard greens, and of course, their version of Succotash.

There is no opening date yet for Succotash, which will be located on F Street in Washington, D.C.
