For now, the restaurant is serving lunch only. According to its Twitter feed, today's "Blue Plate Special" lunch will include fried fluke, smoked chicken, red beans and rice and mashed potatoes. Important note: Today's service is cash-only.
For those unfamiliar with Willmann, he most recently ran the (tiny) kitchen at Erato on Main in Edwardsville, Illinois. There he gained quite a following, and in 2008 RFT named him Best Local Chef. In other words, expect a crowd: Farmhaus might be the most anticipated new restaurant of 2010.
Update: (Friday, March 5, 9:06 a.m.) Farmhaus just Tweeted the following:
Distributor and credit card issues have turned the Blue Plate Special into an Open House with Free Samples today at Farmhaus. Open at 11.
