A couple months back I photographed one of my favorite local hot spots for their new website. I've been going to Five Leaves since it opened years ago. This restaurant has quite the scene, located right at the tip of McCarren park that connects Brooklyn neighborhoods Williamsburg and Greenpoint. The interior is great with a nautical inspired themed, the food delicious and consistant. Dining outside if the best place to people watch. Have a look at their new site and be sure to check it out if you haven't. My only recommendation is try to go early, they are always packed. Open breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also visit Nights & Weekends one of their other venues across the street.
