Mission Chinese Food remains one of the hardest reservations on the Lower East Side, even a year after first opening. Danny Bowien pretty much struck gold. Armed with this success, the longhaired chef is expanding northward. A few paces up the block.

Mission Chinese ownership reportedly purchased the assets from Noodle Bar at 172 Orchard Street, and is planning a “Mexican Chinese” style eatery. The SLA subcommittee of Community Board 3 heard the new application at the marathon meeting earlier this week. We are told they were one of the final applicants of the night, and ultimately walked away with an approval for restaurant wine privileges.

As for the Noodle Bar, it’s closing on Sunday for good.

No name or further information on the venture is currently available. We’ll keep you posted.
