A true magician of the kitchen, the media savvy Uruguayan chef Claudio Aprile (one of the three judges of Master Chef Canada) loves serving gourmets in his Origin Restaurant. It is a chic lair adorned with designer chandeliers, mullioned windows, and exposed brick walls, exhibiting old photographs.
The open kitchen in the heart of the restaurant produces tapas to share, such as icy black cod with miso, Peking duck, or squid with pineapple. A seafood bar offers an excellent shrimp ceviche, or fresh oysters with yuzu sauce, while the desserts are just as delicious, with revisited classics such as frozen floating island with Guinness or yogurt trifle.
Taste the inviting house cocktails, ranging from classical to more original compositions, and relax in the lounge before you sit down at one of the coveted tables of this popular restaurant.
