The Mission Burger Returns: Meet Mission Bowling Club's Restaurant


The famed Mission Burger. (I think it took two years off my life.)

Remember that six-lane bowling alley that I mentioned was coming to the Mission? Well, here’s an update about the project with some exciting details for you. It’s going to be called the ~MISSION BOWLING CLUB~, and is opening in spring 2012 at 3176 17th Street, near South Van Ness. And here’s who is going into the restaurant portion of the project: Anthony Myint (behind Mission Street Food, Mission Burger, Mission Chinese Food, and Commonwealth). His menu will feature the Mission Burger (you remember that bad boy he cooked up with chef Danny Bowien at the Duc Loi supermarket?) and other “technique-driven comfort food.” And true to Myint’s form, a portion of sales will go to local youth-related charities.

To recap, Sommer Peterson and Molly Bradshaw (mini bar SF) are behind the project, which is opening in a converted warehouse. There will also be a spacious bar, a dining room with a mezzanine overlooking the lanes, leather couches situated lane-side, and rotating shows of local artwork. There will also be a sunny outdoor patio and covered bicycle parking. Hours will be Mon-Fri 5pm-2am, Sat-Sun 12pm-2am. (Family bowl will be from 12pm-7pm on weekends; 21+ on weekdays.) Now we just have to wait until next spring…
