Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: beef brisket and eggs on multigrain from Origin Liberty

The western outpost of Claudio Aprile’s successful Origin restaurant has been drawing lunchtime crowds since last summer. Outfitted by Stroudfoot, the subterranean space provides hungered patrons with a feast for both the mouth and the eyes: a fuchsia accent wall keeps the atmosphere upbeat, while original works of art pay tribute to the building’s gun factory roots. The pièce de résistance? A three-part chandelier composed of gun replicas, sitting pretty in the centre of the space. 

Meanwhile, the lunch crowd can avoid repetition thanks to a daily sandwich pick ($9). When we stopped by, a beef brisket number was trumpeted on the sandwich board outside. The hefty ’wich begins with the brisket: cured for a week, it’s shaved thin, cooked on the flat top and finished with chimichurri sauce. Tucked between slices of toasted multigrain country bread from Ace Bakery, the meat is topped with vintage cheddar and a duo of fried eggs.

Gobbled down with a side salad (arugula, shaved parm and radish, finished with a yuzu vinaigrette), this comforting pick will have you stuffed for hours.

Origin Liberty, 171 East Liberty St., Suite 100, 416-649-4567
