We were saddened to hear that Origin Liberty quietly closed it’s doors for good last weekend after about a year and a half in business.
We were really excited about Origin’s opening back in June of 2012. We are big fans of chef/owner Claudio Aprile and were delighted when we had heard that he would be opening a 2nd Origin location in our neighbourhood. However, it never really found its audience in Liberty Village.
Some would say that the space was simply too big. Others would suggest that the price-point didn’t work with our demographic. Hard to say for sure but we know that the other two Origin locations (the original at King and Church and the 3rd at Bayview Village) are both extremely successful.
Regardless, we wish Claudio Aprile well and are definitely curious to see what pops up in that space next.
