DETAILS

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED TEMPORARILY FOR RENOVATIONS

The Lower East Side spinoff of James Beard Award-winning chef Danny Bowien's San Francisco Sichuan sensation, Mission Chinese Food serves small plates such as barbecued pig ear terrine and smashed cucumbers, as well as larger plates that have included sizzling cumin lamb breast and salt cod fried rice.

Beer, wine and shochu or wine cocktails. Serving lunch, dinner and late-night daily. "Mr. Bowien does to Chinese food what Led Zeppelin did to the blues. His cooking both pays respectful homage to its inspiration and takes wild, flagrant liberties with it. He grabs hold of tradition and runs at it with abandon, hitting the accents hard, going heavy on the funk and causing all kinds of delicious havoc."
— Pete Wells, The New York Times, July 24, 2012

"Eaten separately, or in tiny doses, ­Bowien’s antic, umami-bomb creations have a certain gut-busting charm."
— Adam Platt, New York magazine, July 22, 2012
