Resy Presents: Secret Special with Danny Bowien & Friends


A dinner party with friends is guaranteed to be special. But when Danny Bowien is the host, you’re in for an electrifying time.

Beginning in September, Resy will team up with Danny Bowien, the creative mastermind behind Mission Chinese Food, to unleash the chef’s dream dinner series: a rule-breaking, industry-crossing experience featuring the Mission Chinese Food chef’s friends. Under Bowien’s culinary guidance, influential creative minds—think musicians, artists, actors, editors, and cultural influencers—will conceptualize special dishes to be presented at monthly dinner parties and served alongside Mission Chinese Food staples.

Some of Bowien’s collaborators include fashion designers Sandy Liang and Eckhaus Latta, musicians SSION and Saves the Day, and artist Carly Mark, to name a few.

The dinners will take place at Mission Chinese Food Bushwick, hosted by Bowien and his collaborators. Following each dinner, the Secret Special dishes will remain on the menu for the remainder of the month.
