Which would you pick for a date with the husband?

    The beer keg, cramped tables, hipster atmosphere, pink lighting, and giant dragon hanging from the ceiling at Mission Chinese don't read "date" like to me.

    Red Farm is a little nicer and more upscale in terms of decor, but it's also quite loud. And you may end up at the communal table IIRC. However, the wait may be shorter there than at Mission.

      at this point, we are not really looking for romantic- just better food and shorter wait times!

        My instinct is to say Mission has better food but likely RedFarm will have a shorter line...
