NEW YORK CITY | Five Leaves is a cafe that was going to be opened by the late Heath Ledger and his friend Jud Mongell, in Greenpoint, the neighbourhood Ledger called home. Ledger passed away while the cafe was still in the early stages of development, but with help from his family back in Australia and his friends and family in the USA it was opened in his honour.

The causal space has a homely feel about it, with timber, marble, a bit of a maritime feel, and a few nods to Australia dotted around the place. At night, DJs spin chilled out tunes in the corner which adds to the chilled yet lively vibe of the venue. The menu is a refined Australian take on things, which fits in well with the area and wouldn’t be out of place in Melbourne’s Fitzroy or Sydney’s Surry Hills. It’s about quality produce, and dishes that allow the produce to shine.

Think excellent espresso, and dishes like matcha chai pudding with toasted almond, poached pear, candied ginger, grilled hanger steak with broccoli rabe, celery root mash & harissa butter, and a spicy chicken burger with chili lime rub, smoked onion aioli, shredded romaine, provolone, on a sesame roll.

For drinks it’s a selection of local and imported wines and beers along with a more interesting cocktail and spirits list. Try the “Doctor Washington” with apple brandy, strega, cocchi torino, smith and cross, and angostura, or the “Christmas Island” with diplomatico reserva, ramazotti, lime, mint, and prosecco.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
