The empty spot on the 18th Street side of 1801 Market St., last occupied by Pikkles Plus, is getting a new tenant.

Devon & Blakely - an upmarket sandwich/salad spot with a strong delivery business at its locations in Washington, D.C., and New York City, just signed on. This will be the first Philly location.

It's due to open by the end of the year.

Since Pikkles Plus folded in April, the immediate area has seen the opening of Brodo, a similar cafe operation, at the United Plaza (31 S. 18th St.).
