To say that Forbes Cross has always had a passion for the Culinary Arts is very true. From growing up watching his mother cook, to opening and owning 5 restaurants in the last 20 years, Forbes has always known a thing or two about good food and sharing his family’s recipes with the world.

Forbes started his career in 1985 when he opened his first restaurant, Michael Forbes in Waldo, MO. After the many successes he experienced in his career (Parkway 600, Union Café, and Forbes Woodfire Grille, to name a few) in 2012 he opened his latest venture: Michael Forbes Bar and Grille.
