In July of 2003 matchbox opened its first location and quickly became known for wood-fired pizzas, mini burgers, fresh salads and chef-inspired entrées, like pan-seared sea bass and oven-roasted filet mignon. We like to call it elevated American bistro fare, crafted from high quality ingredients with a chef at the helm in every kitchen.
By the end of our founding year, matchbox had become a neighborhood fixture and earned the honor of Washington, DC’s "Best New Restaurant” of 2003 by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW).
