Signage went up Friday for the new restaurant coming to a space at 19-23 St. Mark's Place...
A tipster had previously told us that CheLi was affiliated with Szechuan Mountain House on the other side of the upper level here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
CheLi is taking over from Chipotle, who vacated the premises in August 2018.
Meanwhile, in the lower portion of this complex, Teso Life, a Japanese variety store with several NYC locations, is the new tenant for the former St. Mark's Market. Next door, Mi Tea is in its third month of dormancy due to "renovations."
