The prospect of a rent increase is sending restaurateur Armando Aparicio to Passyunk Square Civic Association to feel out public opinion about his plan to move El Zarape - his homespun Mexican BYOB/grocery - from 1648 E. Passyunk Ave. into a property at 1304-06 S. Ninth St.

It's just off the corner of Ninth and Wharton Streets, across from the rear of Pat's Steaks and catercorner to the South Philadelphia Musicians Mural on the edge of the Italian Market.

The move there would require a zoning variance. There's a meeting Tuesday, Oct. 8 to discuss the matter.

For now, it's status quo at the Passyunk Avenue restaurant.
