The Foo Chu Cafe was a restaurant at 4315 Excelsior Blvd. in St. Louis Park.
In February 1963 owner Jimmy Wong added a new piano room featuring veteran blues-and-bordello style pianist Frank E. Hines. Hines wrote “Physical Therapy Blues” at the Veterans Hospital after undergoing a double leg amputation.
The Foo Chu, one of the legendary entertainment spots on Excelsior Blvd., burned down in 1978.
