Heavy Table food editor James Norton joins the Current's Morning Show to talk about the local food scene.

Today on The Morning Show's Eating and Drinking, James Norton chatted with Steve Seel and Jill Riley about where to take out-of-town guests to eat. He sends you to Heyday or The Strip Club Meat and Fish to celebrate. For breakfast: Al's Diner and The Buttered Tin. To give a taste of local color head to The Triple Rock Social Club or The St. Paul Farmer's Market or Cossetta.

Where would you take an out-of-towner?

James has also written a book of short stories that he's started a kickstarter for. If you are interested in the book, you can check out more information about The Wendigo's Credit Card and Other Stories here.
