Mark and Lynn duck into the charming Five Leaves in Greenpoint...

On our recent trip to the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn Lynn and I had the opportunity to visit some of the eateries that we had long wanted to visit one of which was Five Leaves. The restaraunt, in part the brainchild of the late, great Heath Ledger had a breezy, bistro vibe and hip looking servers and bartenders.  Even though we were there at an in between time arund 3 the place was jumping.  The staff handled the rush with pose and finesse.  Lynn and i had a couple of drinks and tried the Charred Shishitos and the "Devils on Horseback" which was bacon wrapped medjool dates with habenero vincotto and almonds.

The drinks were crisp and savory on a hot August day and the food was the perfect bar snacks.  Our short stop here help us get our second wind and push through the rest of our day trip.  The menu had a number of itmes that we were tempted by such as the Tuna Bahn Mi, Charred Fennel and Grilled Okra.
