BROOKLYN, NY — Five Leaves is a “hipster” bistro in the up-and-coming but still edgy Greenpoint section of Brooklyn at the corner of Lorimer Street and Bedford Avenue across from McCarren Park.

Located at 18 Bedford Avenue, it opened in 2008, serving contemporary food, American/Australian, with vegan and gluten options. There are sidewalk tables in the warmer months and a walk up coffee window.

The restaurant was conceived of as hangout by the actor Heath Ledger for him and his friends.
