    Origin, on the patio! My only warning is that the last time I was there, they were still working the kinks out of their patio service. Hopefully, they've adjusted to the new volume and are running smoothly again.

    Hmm, but they don't open until 5, which may put a damper on your plans.

      hi TorontoJo-what dishes did you try at Origin?

        Hmm... lots! Here's an older post with my run down:


        But I would update the Spanish fries to "really good". And the burger my husband had a couple of weeks ago looked delicious and juicy. I don't care for the current rock hen preparation as much as the original one, so I'm downrating that one.

        You definitely want to order a few dishes, as none of them are big.

      100% Origin patio. Hours are 11:30am-3:00pm, 5:00pm until closing. I suggest you kill the hour from 4-5pm with a cocktail at the Consort Lounge in the King Eddy. It's about a 30 second walk door-to-door.
