Leaf Bar & Lounge

Venue Info

Flushing is know more for its abundance of cheap Asian dining options than flashy rooftop lounges, yet Leaf Bar & Lounge manages to combine the two ideas in a rustic-chic take on an izakaya with Taiwanese street foods joining quality cocktails. The bar menu by chef Henry Lin, from Taiwan himself, is filled with satisfying snacks like pork belly buns and popcorn chicken. The unexpected drinks have both flavor and character, exemplified by the Pineapple Express -- vodka and sherry with pineapple puree and salted-caramel syrup in an ornamental copper cup.
