Matchbox Sawgrass Mills to Celebrate One-Year Anniversary with Original Culinary Creations

Sunrise, FL (March 19, 2018) In the spring of 2017, matchbox vintage pizza bistro, headquartered in Washington, D.C., wowed the South Florida community by opening a two-level, 450-seat restaurant at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise. To celebrate its one-year anniversary, matchbox sawgrass mills will be serving up limited-time menu items from April 16-22, 2018.

“We like to have fun and bring the whole community together, and celebrating for just one day isn’t enough,” said Eric Brannon, area director of operations.  “Our weeklong celebration will center around some new and exciting original creations that our culinary team has come up with using our fresh ingredients and homemade specialties.”

For the week of April 16, 2018, matchbox sawgrass mills will offer an original Garlic Gulf Shrimp Pizza with garlic white sauce, tomato, Parmesan cheese, and basil (small, $14; large, $21); as well as a Roseberry Punch cocktail with blackberry gastrique, rosemary syrup, vodka, lemon, and bubbles ($10). In honor of National Autism Awareness Month, $1 of every special pizza sold will go to Autism Speaks, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting solutions for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support.

Guests can also receive a free “The Classic” brownie sundae dessert with the purchase of an entrée upon request/mention.

“Over this past year, we have enjoyed immersing ourselves in the community and proving that we offer much more than a casual dining experience,” said Brannon.  “From our artisan ingredients and hand-pulled mozzarella to our craft cocktails, we are setting a higher standard of casual dining for all to enjoy.”

Located in the east end of the Colonnade Outlets section of Sawgrass Mills, matchbox provides a sophisticated urban, cozy and welcoming ambiance. The two-story location boasts a 58-seat indoor/outdoor bar, private event accommodations, and an eight-seat chef’s table with a close-up view of the kitchen. Centered around fresh, premium ingredients, the diverse menu offers wood-fired pizzas, burgers, sandwiches and private label wine, as well as a full bar with handcrafted specialty cocktails.
