Matchbox is one of my favorite restaurants in Washington – I usually go to the location at Gallery Place, but there is also one on Capitol Hill. The sliders are delicious and easily a must-get appetizers, but I especially love their brick-oven pizza, which is wonderfully thin-crusted. Be sure to get your pizza with their fresh mozarella as it really does make the pizza amazing.
One thing about Matchbox is that it is *insanely* crowded all the time. I have found that going at off-times (like a 3pm lunch on a Saturday) greatly increases the odds of getting a table with a very short wait, but even that is not guaranteed. Still, if you are willing to wait a bit, the food is delicious.
