SAN DIEGO – Yong Cheol Chi and Heesun Cha recently signed 10-year, $1,994,204 deal with Mercado Shopping Center, LLC to occupy a 5,168-square-foot space at the center.
Kyle Clark, Dan McCarthy and Lev Mizan of The Heritage Group represents the Landlord, Mercado Shopping Center, LLC. The San Diego-based tenant, a Korean BBQ operator, was represented by Dennis Yoon of Allen C. Townsend and Associates.
The space, centrally located within the Mercado, will be fully upgraded, complete with copper hoods suspended over the in-table grills and outdoor seating, allowing the interactive dining experience to ignite intrigue amongst patrons of the Mercado Shopping Center. In addition to a variety of grill-your-own meats and seafood, diners will enjoy other Korean favorites such as rich stews, beers and Soju, all while noshing on Banchan; small side dishes of vegetables, tofu and other daily offerings, typically served as a set of nine for a table to share.
“This will bring an entirely new and unique dining experience to the area,” said Clark. “With the cooking activity at each table, the experience will be exciting for families and friends looking for a fun night out.”
The Mercado Shopping Center is an approximate 63,211-square-foot two-story shopping center anchored by Baron’s Market, situated on the corner of Rancho Bernardo Road and Bernardo Center Drive. The district architecture including an elevator shaft disguised as a bell tower, baroque-style lampposts and a stone fountain create a sense of whimsy in this bustling center.
