L’Origin Osmosis

Creativity & tradition, quality & agility

By Brian Gallagher 03.03.20

Nowadays time pressure seems like an inevitable part of life, no matter how well we organise ourselves there’s no escape. When it comes to making time for quality food even the greatest foodies are sometimes under pressure. This reality is partly the inspiration behind L’Origin Osmosis a new facet of the Osmosis project. Why sacrifice quality just because we are short on time?

Frederic Fernández and Ignasi Montes are the two figures behind this gastronomic project that occupies the first floor of Osmosis. The restaurant is located on Aribau between Provenza and Mallorca, a fascinating neighbourhood for discovering emerging and avant-garde culinary experiences. The first floor is organised as a series of connected spaces with an ambience that resembles more a library than a restaurant. L’Origen is a response to loyal customers who want to combine great food experience with a visit to the theatre, cinema or something else. The quality of the food and wine however are unaffected.
