After mucho silence, this was the weekend of Mission Chinese Food

Mission Chinese Food is now open at 171 East Broadway. Chef-owner Danny Bowien announced the news Friday evening via a series of Instagram shots. And with authority, too – check out that epic photo. The caveat here, though, is that the restaurant is only open for dinner service and closed on Mondays. At least for the time being.

Until now, Bowien had been stingy with the updates, rarely showing his hand. The strategy paid off, eliciting hype and heightened anticipation from foodies.

Mission Chinese Food is also pairing up with Russ & Daughters for a Christmas lunch menu. You know, the whole Jews eating Chinese food on Christmas tradition.

171 East Broadway was previously home to Rosette, a failed concept that only lasted nine months. The Mission restaurant reboot comes one year after Bowien closed the OG iteration due to a plethora of building issues and a mouse infestation. A lawsuit remains in progress between Bowien and the landlord of 154 Orchard Street (Abraham Noy).
