An anchor of the Greenpoint scene, Five Leaves draws a wide mix of neighborhood regulars who create a lively buzz at both outdoor tables in front and in the vintage-filled interior. Stop by in the morning for ricotta pancakes, fresh pastries and great coffee (from Parlor Coffee), or at lunch for a Reuben toastie, truffle fries and chopped black-kale salads.
In the evening, the market-fresh seasonal menu features the likes of chili-rubbed pork chop and crispy black rice with fried duck egg. Add in wines and creative cocktails for the start to a great night.
