Hickory Lane installs a bar

The Fairmount bistro got its liquor license.

Hickory Lane installs a bar


Hickory Lane, which opened last December across from Eastern State Pen at Corinthian and Fairmount, has picked up its liquor license. And with it comes an eight-seat bar. And a new "old" general manager: Daniel Elliott, who has returned from opening Rittenhouse Tavern. 

The list is designed to complement chef Matt Zagorski's seasonal menu, Of the 11 beers in bottles, four are seasonal. (Right now, they're running Stoudt's Oktober Fest and Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen.) Small wine list - three reds, three whites, two house - available in glasses, bottles and 17-ounce carafes. Spirits include a decent selection of gins and single-malts.

A bar menu is on the way.

BYO will be permitted for the next couple of weeks during the transition, Elliott says
