Over time, signature dishes can get jaded and overrated. Not so for the sliders at Matchbox, which feature the standard combination (ground beef, cheese) but keep setting a superior example. With high-quality ingredients and the perfect proportion of bread to meat, these baby Angus burgers sport a smoky, char-grilled flavor, creating a rustic contrast to their soft brioche bedding. A massive tangle of wispy fried onion straws, looking like a head of blond ringlets, gives the dish visual drama, and if you’re not careful, you’ll polish off the entire curly lot. Sliders can be ordered in quantities of three, and you can choose from three cheeses. Go for the Gorgonzola.
