our second stop on the avocado toast tour was joseph leonard. it is situated on one of my favorite streets in all of nyc, christopher street, next to one of the prettiest red doors you've ever seen.  since they don't take reservations and it is super tiny, you almost always have to wait on a weekend brunch day. luckily theres a super cute book store (three lives), a pet shop and one of my favorite stationary shops (greenwich letterpress) right next door.

it was way busier than this when we were there - i just haven't quite mastered the whole picture-taking-thing yet. picture via nymag
