Pop Up Restaurant with Local Foods: Marshall Helmberger On Hometown Chef's New Concept
Chef Bryan Morcom

This week on the Border News Roundup editor Marshall Helmberger fills us in on the condominium project in Tower, the gloomy and colder than usual temperatures this year, and peak color observations. 

He also told us about a trained chef who has come back to his hometown to work with local foods and possibly start a new fine dining restaurant.  He's trying it out with a pop up restaurant - taking over the Black Bear Cafe.  Marshall and his wife Jody experienced the pop-up dining and gave a big thumbs up to the menu of Indian inspired northern Minnesota fare including curry walleye, naan, wild rice harvested by Chef Bryan Morcom himself and a dessert featuring local chokecherries.
