When Mission Chinese Food reopens, it will likely be in a new location, Danny Bowien tells Zagat. The restaurant has been closed since November, when the Health Department shut it down following a major rodent infestation that Bowien blamed on nearby construction. Bowien had originally planned to remain in the same space, but fixing the building’s extant code violations proved “so expensive,” he says, he’s now scouting new locations in the Lower East Side.
