This is awesome. Haters gonna hate, but I really loved Mission Chinese and when they were closed by the Health Department earlier this year, it was sad to see them disappear. However, I just learned from this video with Danny Bowien that they are finally re-opening the restaurant in a larger, nicer space at 171 E. Broadway.
I guess this sort of sucks. But it seems Mission Chinese in NYC has once again been shut down by the Health Department for a mice infestation. No worries though I guess. That means it’ll be super-duper clean for a few weeks after it reopens. This will never stop me from going here.
I’m actually pretty sure that I saw them filming a portion of this when I was back in NYC at the end of last year.
