What’s well known to Bolton Hill residents and MICA students was a revelation one Sunday morning when we stopped in while biking through the neighborhood. We ordered coffee, perused the chalkboard menu, and decided on the namesake sandwich, the On the Hill Club. Roasted turkey, bacon, avocado, greens, tomato, and chipotle mayonnaise, served between slices of toasted wheat bread—it may not read as an unconventional sandwich, but it was easily one of the best we’ve eaten in some time. From an admixture of simple elements emerged a near-divine whole. So good we cursed with pleasure. Fresh ingredients and attention to detail go into all the sandwiches and burgers here, and while they flirt with the $10 mark, they’re big and tasty enough to justify the outlay.
