Five Leaves - Ricotta Pancakes
Mid-July, 90 degrees, a thousand percent humidity... perfect day to meet some friends for a bite with outdoor seating. Put your name in, have a drink down the block at drinkenhausen, and an hour later you've got a seat Greenpoint's premiere brunch spot.
Looking over the menu for a while, I finally settled on pancakes. So what's happening here? We've got ricotta pancakes, with honeycomb butter (looks like ice cream, doesn't it? it's not but it's awesome), banana, blueberries, and strawberries. Oh, and their bacon... phenomenal (not pictured).
It doesn't look like it, but this was an incredibly large amount of food... and I ate a lot of it.
As it turns out, I can't hold my pancakes.
