Mission Chinese Food Is Now Taking Reservations, Kind Of

It's a quirky system, but the essential part is that you'll wait less.

The hip young crowds that can regularly be found massing outside of Mission Chinese Food now have an option to skip the line: today, the hit restaurant's SF location rolled out free online reservations, no fancy app required. Of course, given their ad hoc nature and the tininess of their space, things are a little different: you can make a reservation for up to 10 at your preferred time, and they'll "do [their] absolute best to hold a table for you." If that doesn't end up working out, "at worst, you will be first on the wait list, and should have a 5-10 minute wait." Try not to stare too longingly at those MSG shakers while you cool your heels.
