Food Friday: Hitchcock Delicatessen on Bainbridge Island

After visiting the Bloedel Reserve, some friends and I went to downtown Bainbridge to grab a bite. We were looking for something that was delicious, but not exactly pricey which is where Hitchcock comes in. While their restaurant is expensive, the cafe/delicatessen next door is actually extremely reasonably priced and very high quality.

With a group of four, we had the opportunity to try four different sandwiches. None of us were let down by our choices. We tried the the roast beef, the pastrami, a turkey club (with bacon), and the Cuban press sandwich. All of the sandwiches are between $8 and $10 and they offer wine and beer, if you are so inclined.

Above: The turkey sandwich. Those are figs, turkey, arugula, with bacon added for extra measure.
Below: The roast beef sandwich. Cheese, horseradish, onion, and beef all on a potato roll.

Next up: The Cuban Press. Two types of ham, sweet bread and butter pickles, caramelized onions, and mustard come together in this sandwich.
Finally, the best for last: The pastrami. Delicious brisket, rustic bread, kraut, and cheese. This one was my favorite. Maybe I was just craving brisket (and have been), but this hit the spot.
