Aptly named, this narrow, three-story restaurant is always packed. Why? Three reasons: the thin-crust pizzas that come out of Matchbox’s brick oven; the platters of mini hamburgers, and the casual, fun atmosphere. In the mood for something a little fancier? Matchbox also serves traditional bistro dishes like pork tenderloin and rockfish.
