A short panic came over the Church Hill Neighborhood Facebook group when news that Anthony’s on The Hill was to close this weekend on the 29th. We spoke with owner Michael Calogerakis to confirm the news and, unfortunately, it is so, Anthony’s is closing for good.
However, it is not all bad news.
The plans are to close the space for the next one to two months while the owner works on a new concept. While they’re not ready to announce a new name for the restaurant, they did tell us that the offerings will include hot breakfast options, sandwiches, and more. CHPN is going to meet with Michael to discuss the concept more next week, so we’ll keep you in the loop.
Established in 2011, Anthony’s on the Hill has been a popular place in our neighborhood; providing homemade and delicious Italian-American comfort food. Many of us loved the pizza dough crust, the meatballs, the salads and the marinara sauce. Now with 8 1/2 as the closest Italian American food option, we will miss this place but we are also excited that a new and potentially delicious breakfast nook is coming to the hill.
