Weekend Brunch - Option A

Maybe you don't think about going to a pizza place for brunch, but you should. Matchbox alternately amuses me and annoys me. I like the menu, but I hated the looong wait at the Chinatown location. Anything more than 30 minutes and I'm going somewhere else. I'm just not that patient. With a second location in Capitol Hill, it's a lot easier to get a table, some sliders and a pie.
Matchbox has a fun list of Bloody Marys. The Fire one in particular is deliciously spicy. Sriracha rim? Yes please. They also have a more whimsical rendition called the Bloody Beer, with a PBR tall boy and your choice of bloody mary mix.

Fresh fruit waffle with strawberries and bananas. The raspberry whipped cream was a little sad though.

Veggie Frittata with cremini mushrooms, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, fingerling potatoes, baby spinach and pesto.

Cast-iron chorizo and manchego egg tortilla with salsa verde, chipotle sour cream and brunch potatoes (the potato sticks on top).

Small Simple Salad with parmesan cheese crisp, dried cherries, tomatoes, red onion and balsamic vinaigrette.
Fire and Smoke pizza with roasted red peppers, Spanish onions, chipotle pepper tomato sauce, garlic pureer, smoked gouda and fresh basil. Spicy and delicious.
Veggie with cremini mushrooms, Spanish onions, roasted garlic, roasted poblano peppers, mozzarella, fresh herbs and fingerling potato crisps. The crispy potatoes added textural interest, were kind of unnecessary.
