Had dinner at Origin in Somerville on Friday night. I had never been, but my girlfriend had...we had a party of 6.

I had the Curry Chicken Puffs for appetizer and Wild Boar for Main course...Girlfriend had a duck salad and the seared Tuna.

Well, the food was AMAZING. I didn't care for her salad as I don't like cold duck, but my appetizer and main were both AMAZING. Perfect portions too. Everyone else had a great meal as well and I love that it is a BYOB.

The wait staff was not the greatest, took a while to check on us, and even after we got dessert menus it was quite a while before she came back to take our order. Didn't seem too friendly, and we also got the "plate auction" upon our food coming out...

the dessert (I had the chocolate soufflé) was not the greatest but I didn't really expect it to be.

Again, the food, was.....probably on a top 10 list of mine for best meals ever, I even tried my girlfriends rare tuna, and it was great, and I don't eat seafood(!) and the service wasn't all that "bad" but it wasn't great either. The check for three couples was 75$ a couple, roughly....and well worth it to me...
