Review Preview: Fumanchu



Is Mike Johnson the hardest-working man in the St. Louis restaurant business? Well, consider this: Fumanchu, the chef-restaurateur's new spot in downtown Maplewood -- where he has already established Boogaloo and El Scorcho -- is not quite three months old, yet he has already opened another restaurant, Bici Café, in University City. If he started another venture or two in the week between me writing this and you reading it?

Wouldn't surprise me.

This week I visit Maplewood's Fumanchu. Check back here tomorrow to see what I think.
