Not Accepted


Heath Ledger didn't live to see his planned Greenpoint café, but with funding from his estate, Five Leaves has opened its doors to the public. The casual vibe might remind some of Cafe Gitane, the Nolita hangout where owner Jud Mongell and his wife worked for years. But the triangular space bears a much closer resemblance to Moto, the Williamsburg restaurant whose designers also collaborated on Five Leaves' nautically themed décor. The bar is shaped like a ship's prow; maritime scenes are etched into marble tabletops; and a gold-leafed porthole marks the WC. Former Bette executive chef Ken Addington gives the menu homey Australian accents.
