The lease of Chabaa Thai - which has occupied 4371 Main St. since 2004 - ends in September.
But owner Moon Krapugthong - who prefers not to call the inevitable shutdown an actual "closing" - has her eye on another location.
Meanwhile, it is business as usual at Chabaa Thai.
After 4371 Main closes, she plans to host "pop-up" Chabaa Thai events in her Japanese restaurant, Yanako, at 4255 Main St.
Krapugthong is no stranger to Manayunk. She owned MangoMoon for a spell at 4161 Main St., which later became Gemelli and Bisou. It is now being fitted out for a mid-August debut as Beast & Ale, a bar from the Cantina/La Calaca/Taqueria Feliz team.
Chabaa Thai's move/closing/whatever will put a second restaurant space in play on the street, as Hikaru closed earlier this week.
At least the former Agiato Bread Co. spot, at 4351 Main St., will see action again.
