A Biteclubber noticed that one of my favorite burger spots in Santa Rosa has closed. An application for ownership change was on the door in November, touting Mission Kitchen and Bar to reopen in the 52 Mission Circle spot in Santa Rosa.

A little digging, and a few details on MKB: It’s slated to open in January, the opening menu (if it actually is) looks delish with Shanghai pork lettuce cups with Santa Rosa plum sauce, a PB&J with pork belly, chili jam, pickled veggies and peanut sauce on a bao bun, smoked pork tenderloin with corn spoon bread and sour cherry sauce and Indian chickpea fritter sliders.

Feast caterer Jesse McQuarrie is partner and executive chef, and we’ve lifted a few pics from his recipe development gallery.
