New Years Brunch at Meze, Adams Morgan

Bad service, mediocre food, good Bloody Mary. 10 minutes after our party of 6 ordered a variety of breakfast foods, the waitress tells us she forgot to mention before that they are "out of potatoes." Who cares?, you wonder, except that every single egg dish comes with roasted potatoes. I don't like fries with eggs for breakfast but it was either that or a salad to substitute. So I got a very bland and cold dish of eggs florentine - 2 poached eggs (I'm guessing quail eggs from the size of them) atop a soggy cold english muffin with some flavorless tomato and stringy boiled spinach, and a tasteless hollandaise sauce to top it off, with fries. 3 orders of steak and eggs, another eggs florentine, and a mixture of salad, fries, and lentil meatballs for the vegan of the group later, we left unsatisfied with the food but luckily happy with the good company shared.
Tip: Don't get the virgin bloody mary unless you want plain tomato juice mixed with club soda and lime (no spicy bloody mary mix in sight!)
Ladies restroom downstairs ~ fairly clean, with a scary movable faucet, but has soap, towels, and a door that locks securely.
Last word: A fun place for drinks and dancing at night, stay away from the food, which tends to be overpriced and way overrated.
