Mission Chinese Food Pops Up at Frankie’s 457
I’m a huge supporter of Mission Chinese Food and was one of the first writers to cover the openings in San Francisco (2010) and New York (2012). I was even the first paying customer through the door at the latter!
Not only do I love the imagination behind this restaurant, but the charitable business model is something all restaurants should adopt. The San Francisco location alone has raised over $253,000 for the SF-Marin Food Bank by donating just 75 cents per entree to feeding the hungry.
While the MCF team solidifies a new location in NY, they’ve been hosting pop-up dinners in the carriage house at Frankie’s 457 in Brooklyn. $40 gets you eight full courses comprised of the restaurant’s greatest hits and some new ventures. There are dinners scheduled for June 16-18, 23 and 25, with more dates to be added in July. Visit MCF for more info and check out these photos for a taste of what to expect (click for full slideshow view).
