Matchbox Food Group will open its third Washington-area location on 14th Street Nov. 30.
The Matchbox restaurant, similar to those in Chinatown, on Capitol Hill and in Rockville, was announced last year, and takes over a former Arena Stage rehearsal hall at 1901 T St. NW.
In addition to signature dishes such as pizza from wood-fired ovens and burger sliders, the 14th Street Matchbox will also have a dedicated take-out station near the back of the three -tory restaurant with its own entrance on T Street.
The 14th Street Matchbox will be managed by Michelle Hebert, currently assistant manager at the Rockville location. Executive Chef Jeffrey Richardson will be in charge of the kitchen, promoted from his current job as sous chef at the Capitol Hill Matchbox.
Matchbox, which also has a restaurant in Palm Springs, Calif., plans to open a fourth Washington location in Merrifield next year.
