Danny Bowien opened his rebooted Mission Chinese Food almost exactly one year ago today. Since then, it’s been relatively smooth sailing with Angela Dimayuga’s chicken feasts, pepperoni pizza, charcoal-infused cocktails, and great reviews. Now, finally, after 370 days of business, the crew has announced it will roll out brunch, starting on Christmas Day:
There will be Black Seed bagels baked in Mission’s oven (will Bowien’s squid-ink bagels make a triumphant return?), as well as dim sum carts. As Bowien tells Metro, of all places, “We’re gonna have dim sum carts going around, but not with traditional dim sum … It’s gonna be Mission Chinese Food: little plates of mapo tofu, and scrambled egg and tapioca dumplings.”
It all starts 10 a.m. on Christmas morning, then brunch hours shift to 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. after that.
