Savor Modern American Fare at Matchbox Reston, VA

Tuna tartare tacos with sriracha mayo. Jumbo wings dry-rubbed with Old Bay. Crispy tempura shrimp complemented by Cajun remoulade. And these are just the appetizers. At Matchbox, the chef is in the business of taking classic American dishes and turning them on their head, resulting in a totally new type of cuisine.

Since Matchbox opened its doors, customers have taken notice. The glowing reviews have come rolling in for everything from the Nashville hot chicken sandwich to the poke bowl. If you order the former, it comes on a fluffy brioche bun with pickles, mayo, cabbage, and a mouthwatering spread inspired by deviled eggs. If you go for the tuna poke bowl, you’ll receive a bed of sticky rice piled high with avocado, cucumber mango, edamame, and spicy sriracha tuna, plus a drizzle of citrus ponzu and some spicy mayo on the side. Want to try one of the signature pizzas? You can’t go wrong with the “holy grail” Margherita, which features a simple combination of crushed tomatoes and basil, shredded mozzarella cheese, and fresh herbs.
