Five Leaves- Greenpoint

I stumbled upon the new restaurant, Five Leaves in Greenpoint a few days after its opening. It has been getting a lot of press as Heath Ledger was one of the investors. The ambience is fantastic, designed by the same person who did Moto but sadly I can't say the same for the food or service. We ordered an appetizer of ricotta and fig that was so bland, we all put down our forks. We also tried the roasted chicken with lentils (the lentils being the best thing on the table), the Five Leaves burger and a regular burger. We all left pretty dissatisfied. Granted, it had just opened so there are kinks to be worked out. I would be willing to give it another shot but am far more likely to go there for a drink and hang at the bar then actually order dinner again.
