Five Leaves in Br" />
Ok. This is it. If I could pick one burger to have for the rest of my life, it would be from Five Leaves in Brooklyn NY. Surprising, as the restaurant is a bit Australiand and a bit New Zealand, and I stand by a good ol fashioned american burger, but somehow this place just does it right.
The bun is perfect, the meat is flavorful and juicy. The sauce is a spicy harrisa mayo with a touch of lime. I choose to go for the more classic burger, but you can also jazz it up and order the “five leaves” burger which comes with beet and an egg.
Do yourself a favor and visit this place as soon as you can, but keep in mind you’ll be going with the hoards of other people that flock to this brunch spot each weekend and evening. I’ve waited over an hour before just to have another one. Luckily the charm and the stumptown coffee window will keep you company. And, if you can’t make it or the wait is just too long, they generously put the recipe in The New Brooklyn Cook Book which you can order here.
