Hip Matchbox has been a staple of the D.C. foodies scene ever since it introduced the phenomenal foodie trend of “sliders,” though the staff infinitely prefers that you call them “mini burgers.” Stop in early to check out the bar scene, particularly at the Chinatown and Eastern Market locations, where the singles meet and mingle before grabbing a bite. On Friday and Saturday nights the scene heats up; don’t expect to get a table in less than half an hour– and that’s if you’re lucky! Don’t miss the 3.6.9 mini burgers, shown below. The onion straws dusted with cheese make them the best in the area by far. Whether it’s date night or girls’ night out, Matchbox is a great scene for couples and singles.
