Michael Forbes Bar & Grille
Culling inspiration from the original Michael Forbes Grill—a popular dining destination open from 1985 to 1999—the new Michael Forbes Bar & Grille makes guests feel at home with its cozy and casual vibe. Owner Forbes Cross and his son Matt Cross, who helms the kitchen, have forged an accessible menu of gourmet American fare, from fried catfish that's deboned tableside to baby-back ribs that are smoked in-house but away from the smoke alarms. At the granite-top bar, barkeepers pour an impressive selection of red, white, and sparkling wines, while servers saunter to cozy booths decorated by black-and-white framed photos of double rainbows over Kansas City.
