‘Mission Cantina’ Goes Under After 3 Years on Orchard Street

Mission Cantina – chef David Bowien’s kitchen chameleon at 172 Orchard Street – is reportedly donezo. The three-year-old restaurant has been closed of late, its Caviar page deleted, and phone line disconnected. Patrons have also shared their farewells on social media over the last week.
Bowien’s luck on Orchard Street hasn’t been the best. You’ll recall that he opened the Mexican-Chinese establishment in 2013, just a few short months after vacating the sub-level rat trap down the block now run by Red Compass.
Mission Chinese remains open on East Broadway, though.
