Matchbox in Washington D.C., Washington, United States | Restaurant

Welcome to the Matchbox in Washington D.C., United States. It doesn't take a CIA operative to figure out how the owners of Matchbox came up with the name for their new Restaurant in Chinatown. One obvious clue is that each of the tables is inset with several Matchboxes collected from Restaurants around the world.
The three skinny dining areas, stacked up in three stories, have the proportions of, well, Matchboxes. Finally, the big brick oven on the ground floor, visible from the bar, burns a nonstop orange, fueled by a forest of hickory, oak, cherry and other woods. All that heat is needed to turn soft circles of raw
dough into crackling rounds of pizza, the Restaurant?s primary lure. Not just any pizza, the owners want you to know, but New York-style pizza, which is distinguished by a thin, crisp crust and a nice char from a blazing fire. It?s a trick that the handlers here manage pretty well, fairly frequently.
Burger enthusiasts should also plan a research trip to Matchbox, which features bitesize versions?take your pick from three, six or nine among its short list of appetizers. Seasoned with crushed red pepper for some bite, the scaled-down hamburgers are also plump and juicy, slipped inside toasted brioche. Are the scrumptious onion strings, heaped in the centre of the plate.
It?s got spunk. It?s got personality. The service is genial, the tunes are fun, and a double-header?good pizza and good burgers?is a great way to slide into summer.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Matchbox in Washington D.C., United States.
