If you thought Ben Bayly had his hands full with one Commercial Bay restaurant, you’d be wrong. If you thought he couldn’t produce another stunner, you’d be wrong again. Looking for authenticity? You will likely find it here. Want a menu unique to Auckland? This is it. And if you seek an exciting alternative to the ubiquitous bistro food on offer around town, Origine is where it begins. It’s the best of both worlds: a modern French brasserie that embraces the produce of Aotearoa and our own take on laidback service. Note: even les enfants get serious menu consideration; here, Ben has crystallised his multiplicity of talents. That means gathering the best team around him to deliver on his ethos – and serving it up in possibly one of the best harbour-view venues the city has on offer.

IN BRIEF: French classics remastered with a Kiwi touch
