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.
