In a new interview today with the James Beard Foundation, Rising Star nominee Danny Bowien discusses the rumors that Mission Chinese Food may be expanding to Paris, and/or Brooklyn, and/or Oklahoma City, where he grew up. It turns out the Paris idea might be a long ways off, but Oklahoma City might not be! “Obviously we want to open a Mission Chinese in Paris, Brooklyn, and OKC (really badly!), but the reality is that Paris will always be there,” Bowien says. “I think expansion within the states is closer — plus I need to learn French!” [JBF]
