Danny Bowien’s new project at 172 Orchard Street is indeed called Mission Cantina, after all. Documents with the State Liquor Authority suggested as much, but the high-profile chef-owner still denied it when news broke over the summer. Yesterday evening, though, Flo Fab at the New York Times Dining desk weasled some additional details on the venture. Namely that it’ll be “our take on Mexican food,” but not a taqueria.
For you that means homemade Oaxacan-style cheese and tortillas, and a rotisserie for chicken and pork to fill tacos.
Meanwhile, the premises itself is buttoned up pretty tight these days with workers feigning they have no idea what’s happening here.
Mission Cantina opens November 20.
This corner real estate previously housed the Noodle Bar for a five-and-a-half-year run.
