Arrive early for dinner, for shorter wait times.

Spotting the new home of Mission Chinese Food isn't hard. Just follow the long lines of well-bundled chili-seekers down East Broadway.

Danny Bowien told an Eater staffer that the line on Christmas Day literally wrapped around the block and those lines just keep coming, says Village Voice critic Zachary Feldman:

For those hoping to skip the lines (or at least snag a shorter wait time), arrive early for dinner.
