Scarr’s and Mission Chinese join forces on pizza and wings
Lower East Side cool kid pizza joint Scarr’s is heralding its recent reopening by collaborating with hip restaurant Mission Chinese — led by scene-y chef Danny Bowien — on a takeout deal for pizza and wings this weekend.
The menu collab breaks down into two options: A small cheese pie from Scarr’s plus Mission Chinese tingly and spicy chicken wings, or one of Scarr’s small vegan cheese pies plus mushroom mapo tofu from Mission Chinese.
Predictably, pre-orders for Friday — only accepted online through the pop-up’s website — already sold out within the first day of going live. Pre-orders for Saturday pickup will be going live later today, and pre-orders for Sunday will go live on Saturday.
Aside from the Mission Chinese collab, Scarr’s has reopened for pizza takeout and delivery starting today. The restaurant is operating on a slimmer schedule — only open from Wednesday through Sunday, from 12:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. — and diners can’t get slices. Only whole pies are on the menu for now.
Both of Mission Chinese’s locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn remain temporarily shut down.
