Matchbox Review

The miniburgers, served on toasted brioche buns with a huge mound of fried onion strings, get the most press, but the main clue to what to order at this convivial triple-decker bar-restaurant is the glowing wood-burning pizza oven. The personal pizzas are "New York–style," with a thin, crisp crust. You probably won't mistake them for the very best of New York, but the spicy "Fire and Smoke" pie does the Big Apple one better. Homey plates such as braised short ribs with wasabi mashed potatoes and New England seafood stew add substance to the menu. There's a great lineup of draft beers and oddball martinis arranged by "girly" and "manly," plus a kitchen that stays open late on weekends. The newest location, in the hopping U St. corridor, is an architectural stunner.

    Nice Change of Pace from Convention Center

    Friendly staff with a rotating/seasonal menu as of this past Winter 06/07. Newish expansion around and up the back of the main room allows for large group seating. Decent wine list for a pizza shop. And surprisingly good and imaginative pizzas.
