S.F. chef Danny Bowien is not stopping with just two locations of Mission Chinese Food, in San Francisco and New York; as we’re learning today via the new print edition of Food Arts (not yet online), he’s heading to Paris in January to scope out possible restaurant spaces there. Paris may be ripe for Bowien’s spiced up, Americanized versions of Chinese food, as the city has not had a wealth of decent Asian cuisine until very recently, even though Parisians tend to love Asian food and there’s been a significant influx of Chinese immigrants there recently too. It remains to be seen how they’ll feel about his hair. [Food Arts via Grub Street NY]
