Mike Johnson of Sugarfire Smokehouse (9200 Olive Boulevard, Olivette; 314-997-5301) is fresh off his Top Chef win at last weekend's Ultimate Burger Challenge, but he isn't slowing down. The barbecue master has just announced he'll be opening Sugarfire Pie. Before you object, may we remind you of Johnson's "Crack Pie"?
As first reported by Feast, Johnson plans to open Sugarfire Pie at 9200 Olive Boulevard this October, two doors down from the original Sugarfire Smokehouse in Olivette.
Sugarfire pastry chef Caroyln Downs will take the reins and create desserts including the famous "Crack Pie," triple-stacked pies and soft-serve custard.
