Leave Your Comfort Zone Behind at an Australian-American Spot and International-Beer Bar
Nestled away on Bedford Avenue in Greenpoint is Five Leaves, a cozy nautical-themed Australian-meets-American restaurant that’s well worth the trek. Conceptualized as a neighborhood spot that serves local and organic fare by Heath Ledger, one of the silent investors, Five Leaves is both his living legacy and a bustling go-to for a casual and delicious meal with homey Australian accents.
After your Australian meal, make your way to TØRST—where beer is an art form. Opened by Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso, a famed Danish brewer, the bar features 200 bottles and 21 temperature-controlled taps that pour everything from global finds to local brews and beers from Jarnit-Bjergso’s own Evil Twin brewery. TØRST rotates their daily draught menu twice a day, so tap selections are always changing. You have the option to order your beers in 5, 8, or 14 ounce pours, so you can explore the full range. So try a pint or two, sit back, and geek out to beer in the Nordic rusticity of TØRST.
