18 Bedford Ave | Greenpoint | Modern American Bistro | $$
Daily from 8am to 11pm (12midnight on weekends)
Five Leaves is a lovely place on a triangular Greenpoint corner. With a kind of nautical décor, the casual bistro is a perfect brunch spot. If you enjoy oysters, they are great for that too. But you can pass by at any time and eat well. From granola bowls to grilled quail, Indian style. An extensive and creative drinks list makes sure the atmosphere is kept lively until closing time.
