International Dining in DC: Matchbox (14th St.)

1901 14th St.  NW
Washington DC

Once again another new restaurant opens in a once dilapidated building along the 14th st. corridor.  Once the location of an old jazz club, this space has been transformed to it's original glory well the outside at least, we never had to see the inside before the renovation started!  The floating dinning areas are great for private parties and the bar is massive and have three flat screen tvs.  If you know DC and the times to go eat and not to go.  Watch out for the long waits on the weekends with the brunch crowds, a wait can be as much as 45 mins!  grab a stool at the bar for faster service if anything is open.  it's such a large restaurant they only have one bathroom which is down stairs and you may have to fight to get to the restroom in the back near the kitchen!!!  bad planning I think!!  large patio space outside will be awesome for spring and summer time! 

Brunches are great here, nice little menu, they stop serving brunch at 3pm!!! FYI
The menu is OK over all.  On this trip I have a the Matchbox Chicken sandwich and my friend had the Chicken pesto pizza. 

this is a chain restaurant so I'm not going to post anything out of the norm for a rating a local chain.

 3 out of 5 stars ***
