Great, I thought at first. There goes the freedom to walk bra-less in Danskos to rent rom-coms at Film Noir. (none of that last sentence was a joke or an exaggeration).
Until I finally ate there – now I am ready to share my corner with the cutest, coziest, classiest nook I have visited in a long time. The ambiance was warm and buzzing and the staff I encountered were extremely helpful and excited – which I found to be contagious. I recommend the Five Leaves burger, which has the surprise of a pineapple ring in the patty and is topped with beets – a dish that was particularly juicy and off the beaten path. I can’t help but make the prediction that this is a place where I will be drinking LOTS of wine this winter.
And do me a favor: when you go for your first tasting, you need to find Judd, Five Leaves’ owner, and shake his hand. He has worked extremely hard on the restaurant and around a lot of obstacles. This man is truly the king of NaBedLo Triangle, and though a full restaurant makes him happy, getting to know his neighbors makes him happiest.
