This week I visit Farmhaus (3257 Ivanhoe Avenue; 314-647-3800), the new restaurant from chef Kevin Willmann, formerly of Erato on Main in Edwardsville, Illinois. Follow me after the jump for a sneak preview of my review.

Any accounting of Farmhaus must acknowledge the less-than-stellar history of its Lindenwood Park address. More than a few restaurants have failed to stick along this peaceful block: Café Ivanhoe, KoKo, Bistro Toi. After Bistro Toi shuttered in November of 2008 -- a mere two months after opening -- the space sat empty for over a year, one more "cursed" spot.

There. History acknowledged. I'd rather begin at a different address, in another state: the restaurant Erato on Main on Main Street in Edwardsville, Illinois. It was there that I and many others fell in love with the cooking of Kevin Willmann.
Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
