Hickok’s Bar & Grill loses ‘Southwest’ part of name

Fat City first reported on the River Market restaurant — now known as Hickok’s Bar & Grill — last October, when owner Forbes Cross was still calling the place Hickok’s Southwest Bar & Grill. The venue, which opened two weeks ago, has dropped the word Southwest from its title.

“We didn’t want to pigeonhole ourselves,” Cross says. “There are obviously items on our menu that are not Southwestern dishes. We wanted more creative flexibility with our food.”
