FEAST | Origo Club x Opening x Richmond Oval Village

Origo Club | Richmond Oval Village

Richmond—(June 27, 2018) The Lower Mainland's newest dining concept Origo Club, spun off from its Beijing members-only club namesake, combines a few different (very distinct) sensory experiences forming an intriguing upscale triple threat combination: laidback café by day and classic French bistro by night joined by a contemporary Asian art gallery.

There's a unique blend of cultural and culinary influences in the intimate 5,200-square-foot space as the eatery portion (seating for forty-two) boasts classical French influences and style but also features a visible array of clear Chinese elements including an expansive private collection of four hundred pieces of contemporary Asian artwork.

When night falls, Origo Club's space transforms into an ultra-chic restaurant with a menu full of some French fare, a curated wine collection, bespoke cocktails, imported sake, and whiskeys from around the world.

Origo doesn't quite house a full-service kitchen, but their staff boasts an impressive pedigree nonetheless from wine consultant Woody Wu (Hawksworth) as general manager to head chef David Pan (Bishop's) leading the culinary team responsible for crafting the menu of elevated French cuisine.

In particular, the beef tartare with chips and duck breast were spectacular and perfectly paired with some darling vintage wines during the media tasting preview while the other dishes felt expectedly classical yet somewhat unremarkable in their precision.

As the first North American offshoot of the high-profile private Beijing club, Origo embraces its mixed heritage while highlighting a variety of interactive cultural and culinary experiences.
