Say Yum: New Matchbox Opens in Rockville

Matchbox's newest location opened over the weekend in Rockville's Congressional Plaza, meaning Maryland residents are now just minutes away from the resto's signature wood-fired pizzas, miniburgers and craft brews.

This is the group’s fourth and largest matchbox restaurant, with a seating capacity of up to 400, featuring two outdoor patios and fire pits.

Named “Best Pizza” by the Washington Post Express in 2010, this “vintage pizza bistro” sets itself apart with its authentic wood-fired masonry oven where the fire produces an intense heat--over 800 degrees--to achieve the crispy, smoky crust from dough made fresh daily in-house.

The new restaurant features signature matchbox Food Group designs. The “matchbox” seating area, which first appeared in the Capitol Hill location, will also be in Rockville. This wooden box can seat 6-8 people and has become a highly requested table for those who want to see and be seen. The newest location also features a mezzanine level and walls made of aged wood planking taken from two old barns near Rochester, New York.
