This is a little operation in Greenpoint that does an interesting mix of Thai and Chinese. Get a few baos or have some purple dumplings filled with pineapple and peanuts (which are pretty much dessert, and you should know that). Or, you know, play it safe and have some pad Thai or Panang curry or short rib ramen. The space is tiny and casual, and it’s good for a quick dinner with a friend or two.

Suggested by our writers
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.
