ABOUT

It was here in Chinatown that the Matchbox story began. This narrow, rectangular building was three stories tall, fifteen feet wide, and looked like a matchbox. It stood vacant for so long, a tree grew inside of it, like kindling waiting to start a new fire.

Walk past the torch that lights our front door, come in and smell the hot, crackling fire from two brick ovens. Have a seat inside, where we built the reclaimed timber and steel finishes with our own hands, or relax in the sunny atrium that was once an alleyway. Wherever you choose, there’s plenty of space for intimate dinners, large parties and get-togethers. Touch vintage matchboxes from our personal collections, inset on every table, or ask for a bottle of our Matchbox Blend, made with love and featuring that spunky tree that started it all.

We’re Chinatown’s neighborhood gathering place for fun, upscale casual dining, with local, award-winning beers, broad spectrum wines, and handcrafted signature cocktails you won’t find anywhere else. Take a virtual tour of our space by clicking the button below.
