The Hot Dish Preview: 12/19/08
In tomorrow's edition of The Hot Dish, a Jucy Lucy contest, the return of Chef Landon Schoenfeld (formerly of Bulldog NE), a tour of Surly and a New Year's Eve to remember at Heartland.
Also, The Hot Dish talks to Justin Grecco, chef/owner of the newly opened Grecco's on the Saint Croix.
"Our menu changes every week, and my philosophy with this restaurant is to use as much local food as we can," he says. "When I first bought this place in August, I had the pleasure of touring the local farms. The farming community is one of the number one reasons to be located here -- it gives me a chance to source ingredients that are literally picked and brought to me the next day."
