The recently shuttered Dickey's BBQ location at Seventh and South Streets won't be empty for long.

Now blowing dry the ink on a lease for the corner is Meet Patel, a civil engineer who owns Spice End at 2004 Chestnut St. as well as a Spice End food truck based at 33d and Arch Streets, near Drexel.

The South Street branch of Spice End, due to open in early August, will be a tad different from the Rittenhouse flagship.

In addition to Spice End's signature kati rolls, the menu will include four or five Indo-Chinese dishes, says Patel, including "chicken 65," gobi Manuchurian, and paneer chilli.

Takeout and delivery will be the primary focus, though there will be a couple of high-top tables.
