Brunch of the Week – (2 of 2) (9/7/13)

Five Leaves

Greenpoint – 18 Bedford Avenue (Between Lorimer Street & Manhattan Avenue)
Brunch Hours: 8am – 3:30pm Mon. through Sun.

The Place:
A fan favorite, Five Leave packs the people in. They’re serving hearty brunch fare that will leave you thinking about it weeks later. Five Leaves as a whole is a place that is just really cool. Despite it’s casual vibes though, you’ll almost always have a long wait.

What to Eat:
The Mushroom Toast makes us swoon. The dish has sautéed mushrooms and broccoli rabe served over 7-grain toast with verbena cream and a poached egg. Also, don’t miss the Ricotta Pancakes served with honeycomb butter, berries, and maple syrup. (Yes, that’s honeycomb butter and it’s an incredible topping.)

What to Drink: 
I had one of the best cups of coffee here, and um hello, cocktail menu. We love the “Marv-a-rita,” a mix of blanco tequila, Campari, lime, Combier Elixer, agave and bitters.

Reservation Policy:
First come, first served. No reservations accepted.

Happy Brunching, :)
Andrea
