Origin

107 King St. E., 416-603-8009

At Origin, across the street from St. James and the former Occupy site, the dark, hard-edged room is a haven for the area’s suits. The creative cocktail list is designed to blow expense accounts and impress clients. The Seafarer’s Sanctum ($13)—blueberry syrup, dark rum, orange pekoe tea and lemon juice—turns late afternoon into early evening all too quickly. Chef Claudio Aprile’s excellent Asian fusion food helps prevent fall-down drunkery so some work still gets done between drinks.
