May has been busy for Mission Chinese Food chef Danny Bowien. He was nominated for a James Beard Foundation Award for rising star chef; previewed dishes like Sichuan peppercorn-coated chicken wings at F&W's offices; and last week, officially opened the NYC outpost of his San Francisco-based restaurant for lunch and dinner.
Bowien recently found an apartment near the new restaurant, but he's no newcomer to Chinatown—which he explored while living in the city prior to the launch of his West Coast flagship. He took us on a tour of this fantastic food neighborhood and revealed his favorite places to eat off-duty. "You have to get them to put their handmade pulled noodles on top. That’s the best thing in the whole world.”
