This might be the coziest bar in Greenpoint. Factor in the fireplace and the menu of small plates (that changes daily), and you have yourself a certified date spot. If you don’t live in the area, it’s a bit of a hike to get here, but it’s worth checking out at least once. And if you go, be sure to eat something. For how casual this place is, the food is surprisingly good. Expect bowls of bright vegetables and excellent things on toast. Share a few dishes, drink a lot of whiskey, and sit near the fireplace if you want your clothing to smell a little like a bonfire.

Five Leaves has been a Brooklyn hipster staple since 2008. We don't love it as much as other people seem to, but brunch is good, they do a solid burger, and the scene is always entertaining.
