Only orange juice mimosas come in the all-inclusive deal, but at $39.95 minus the Groupon-to-be-explained-later, we can't really complain. Though the mimosas were pretty weak, so we'll still complain a bit.
You get a three-course prix fixe menu, although don't get too excited about the appetizer or dessert portions. The main course is essentially a choice between classic brunch fare (eggs benedicts) and traditional Greek selections (chicken with tzatziki), with only the horiatiki omleta splitting the difference. None of us were brave enough to try the seafood linguini, but you, dear reader, should be.
Our waiter kicked things off by not-so-subtly suggesting — as in, he said, “people literally only come here with a Groupon” — that we purchase an online coupon for 30 percent off our brunch experience. Inevitable confusion with six people ordering three courses at once aside, things stayed positive from there, with off-menu juice selections and little concern for a two-hour limit.
Apparently even with the Groupon deal, very few people come here, which puts a damper on the vibrant holiday decorations strewn throughout the restaurant. Then again, maybe that's what we deserve for hanging out in Farragut Square on a weekend.
Our most expensive "entree" was a $6.49 power bowl that's frankly not that much worse than the dreck Chipotle's charging double for these days

We received small dishes of olive oil right away at 12:01, but the accompanying baskets of bread only several requests later at 12:45, which was really quite a while considering how pedestrian the mini-loaf was.
We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
