100 Favorite Dishes: Uni at Origami

No offense to some of the other good sushi joints in town, but we've always had a soft spot for Origami in the Warehouse District. From its incredibly delicate gyoza to its perfectly constructed maki rolls to the crown jewel, its uni (which we like to think of as the pâté of the sea), Origami has collected countless awards and attracted throngs of famous diners.

Now, in the hopes of taking advantage of possible outdoor patio space, Origami is packing up its Ridgedale location and planning to open a new outpost in the Lowry Hill neighborhood.

Here are the details on the anticipated opening date and the exact location:

The new location, opening sometime in early December, will join the soon-to-open Bar Louie on the main floor of the MoZaic building, right behind the Lagoon Theater on the corner of Girard and Lagoon. The MoZaic building was originally intended to be residential, but after the housing bust the project's management/development group decided to repurpose it as a multi-use commercial and office building.


Like the original location, this Origami will feature a sushi bar, happy hour, and seasonal specials. To keep up with popular nearby neighbors like Stella's Fish Cafe and Drink, Origami is planning outdoor patio seating but will wait for the warmer temps to set in first.

Will the new location be as kid un-friendly as the Ridgedale location? No kids menu and we got yelled at for giving our 2 year old some snacks from home. Last time we ever went there...

 @wheetbix1 Here's hoping so.  If you want to take your kids somewhere go to Chucky Cheese.  No one wants to see children when they are trying to enjoy an evening out.

 @asdf Speak for yourself pal - from Tilia and Crave to every single Parasole property, plenty of great restaurants in town cater to families. Enjoy Origami and its mediocrity or better yet, stay in your basement and have your mother bring down a sandwich.

Yes, and the last thing Uptown needs is another goddamn sushi bar.

"Lowry Hill East?" Uh, that would be Uptown. I'd like to think this is a joke, but it's probably just that you're writing from the press release or are completely clueless.

 @foleycatheter Press release = "I don't have to write or research anything!"http://lowryhillneighborhood.org/files/map.pdf

 @icanreadandwrite I didn't receive a press release on this and always try to be as specific as possible when mentioning neighborhoods, especially if the exact building site has been identified. Girard and Lagoon falls in the neighborhood of Lowry Hill East. If it were on the other side of Hennepin, that would Uptown. The Lowry Hill neighborhood is north and west of the Lowry Hill East neighborhood.

@emily.weiss @icanreadandwrite Actually Uptown refers to a number of neighborhoods including Lowery Hill East. Across Hennepin is East Isles, across Lake is CARAG, and kitty corner across Lake&Hennepin is ECCO.
