FINALLY got to try Five Leaves in Greenpoint, Brooklyn after hearing raves
about their shepherds pie & steamed mussels! I think I have a new favorite restaurant!
Ft. Knox: cocktail recipe via the daily meal
I've been dabbling with bourbon cocktails lately, but bourbon cocktails for ladies.

with figs, fresh thyme, honeycomb, maldon sea salt & fruit~nut bread
This dish was definitely my favorite thing there, closely behind the mussels.
