Matchbox Is Lit. Since opening the flagship location in Washington D.C. in 2002, Matchbox has become known as a high energy restaurant with delicious food and drinks. From their Chef’s Table Bottomless Brunch Buffet featuring a bounty of hangover remedies every Saturday and Sunday to the weekday Social Hour, there’s something for everyone every day of the week.
The newest location on Fort Lauderdale’s New River has the same casual, warm ambiance and friendly staff that earned the neighborhood fixture the honor of being named the capitol’s “Best New Restaurant” of 2003.
Bartender, Morgan Pierce shows us how to make Matchbox’s Strawberry Rose Margarita perfect to pair with any of the restaurant’s crave-worthy menu options.
