An upscale food-meets-art establishment is gearing up to open its doors in Richmond, and we expect it to attract plenty of attention once it makes its debut.
Origo Club (110–6888 River Road, Richmond) will be opening this summer—the dining spot, café, and art gallery concept will be the first North American branch of a private club established in Beijing in 2014.
The 5,200-square-foot space will function as a café in the daytime, serving up coffees, teas, and house-baked goods. At night, it will become a high-end restaurant offering classic French cuisine, wines, cocktails, and imported sakes and whiskies.
Its opening team consists of individuals who have worked in notable kitchens around the city, including co-owner and general manager Woody Wu (Hawksworth), head chef David Pan (Bishop’s), sous chef Dilan Draper (Wildebeest), and café manager Remi Ho (Au Comptoir).
Art-lovers will be able to explore the private contemporary Asian art collection at Origo Club, which will be housed in an expansive gallery and accompanied by a retail store.
“At Origo Club, we are excited to orchestrate and deliver an experience where the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts,” said Wu in a press statement. “We have taken great care and pride in creating a space that brings together the very best aspects of modern Asian art and French-inspired food, wine and café culture.”
