Meet our Owner Adam Hicks

The Depot Street Tavern is the embodiment of all of the best of Milford culinary history.  Adam Hicks and Jess Bean each come from separate and distinct local culinary roots.  Adam has 20 plus years of Milford area food service experience.  Beginning at the age of 13, Adam worked at the well known Cocke and Kettle restaurant in Uxbridge.  By the age of 14, as a culinary student at Valley Tech in Upton, Adam began working at Oliva's Market in Milford where he worked for 10 years learning the value of producing made from scratch food using the best of fresh, locally sourced ingredients.  After graduating from Valley Tech, Adam went on to earn a degree in culinary arts from Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island.  After college, Adam worked as an executive chef for 9 years for Sodexo.

 Adam along with his budding assistant managers Matthew Hicks and Addison Hicks are proud to bring you the Depot Street Tavern, Milford's newest family owned and operated restaurant featuring a friendly casual environment, offering fresh food, cooked from scratch on a daily basis by Adam and his kitchen staff.  Their creative menu and daily specials will change often based on seasons of the year and the availability of fresh local ingredients.
