I honestly feel this is the best brunches I have EVER had. Being a concierge and a New Yorker, I consider myself an expert on brunching (particularly the unlimited cocktail kind) and am always looking for the best value. When we decided to spend Easter in DC, I began my search for the perfect brunch. Masa 14 more than filled the bill! At $35 you get unlimited food and drinks! The food is tapa style, so its meant to share, so you can order several things at once. Everything we tried was delicious, from the burger to the breakfast pizza! Keep in mind it is much more savory than sweet (the only really sweet item was fruit and granola). And let me tell you the cocktails are DIVINE!!!!! Sometimes you will get these unlimited brunches and they come with only basic mimosas and basic bloody mary's and they come from pre made pitchets and are not particularly strong. Not the case here! There list includes several specialty brunch cocktails including the Masa Mimose (with mango puree and blood orange juice), lychee Belini, Lemon lager (a beer spritzer with dos equis and lemon liquor), and my favorite...BACON BLOODY MARY (warning though these are not for the faint of art as they are spicy and strong). Another wonderful thing is the service. Sometimes with unlimited brunches you will practically have to beg for service. Not here! They are really a well oiled machine and we never had to wait for refills of food or drink. Nor did we feel rushed. The ambiance was trendy (busy but comfortable). Note: they also seemed to have rooftop brunch deal from 12-2 that was a little different, and may be first come first serve...but I would call to see. A few tips:
a. reserve early...was very pleased to find that I could reserve 2 months in advance (ps. also pleased that they did not change menu or price for Easter)
b. you can do ala carte...but in order to do unlimited EVERY one in party must do it (not coffee and tea are included but juice is not)
Have already told my boyfriend that we will definitely make brunch here a DC tradition!
