Calexico - a New York City food truck/restaurant specializing in California-style Mexican fare - is building out at 1600 South St., and it hopes to open in January or February 2014.

At the time of that news, there were hints of a second Philly location.

Next week, franchisee Anthony Fauci says he will sign a lease for 100 E. Girard Ave. in Fishtown. This is the site of Penn Treaty Market, at the busy corner of Frankford and Girard Avenues - across from the Wells Fargo Bank and Johnny Brenda's.

Fauci's 917 area code will be in good company with other nearby New York transplants, including Barcade and Fette Sau.

No opening date has been set. Major construction is in order.

Owners of the market confirmed the impending signing and last week moved their market into another part of the property, at 106 E. Girard St.
