San Francisco. New York City. Oklahoma. Paris. Ok, well, with the exception of that proposed outpost in his former hometown, the ascent of Danny Bowien's Mission Chinese Foodempire has been pretty impressive. Having conquered both coasts with his gonzo-style fiery mash-up of "American Oriental" cooking (recently described by Rick Bayless in a tweet as "punk rock concert - a good one -in your mouth"), Grub Street reports (by way of Food Arts magazine) that Danny Bowien will be jetting off to Paris in January for a reconnaissance mission in the hopes of opening an outpost of Mission Chinese Food there.
