“Great brunch, in addition to outstanding pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Matchbox doesn't accept reservations and the wait can stretch to two hours or more, so get there early or go on less popular nights. Their brunch is GREAT -- not sure if it's available at all locations -- but you must order the sticky buns. The fire and smoke pizza is my favorite.

“Romantic and excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

The best first-date restaurant in the city. Mine worked out just fine. That was several years ago. :-)

“The sliders are amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

This was an unexpected find in the heart of Chinatown. But it was very close to our hotel so we gave it a try. The sliders were hands down the best I've ever had! I had the Scallop and risotto (made with pork belly) for my dinner and that was amazing too. My bf ordered two pies, prosciutto and black fig was the best!!! Good selection of craft beers as well.
