THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED ¡Pasión! Restaurant Review:


Guillermo Pernot's inspired Nuevo Latino cuisine is served in a magical neo-tropical setting that seems to make winter disappear altogether. On the windows are louvers lit from behind to duplicate eternal sunlight, which washes over the brightly patterned fabrics, stripes and prints that cover the banquettes and chairs. ¡Pasión!’s menu connects to Pernot’s Argentine roots with dishes such as ceviche, smoked rib-eye served with moros y cristianos (black beans and rice), and parillada, an Argentinean mixed grill for two served on an ox-shaped hibachi. Pernot's imaginative ceviches of fish, razor clam or even snails have patrons coming back for more. Ben Davison, an alumnus of Le Bec-Fin and Striped Bass, is running the kitchen these days, while Pernot concentrates on restaurant consulting. Davison applies his hefty background in classic French cooking to ¡Pasión!’s zesty cuisine, adding his own touches in plating and presentation, including serving many sauces tableside. A tasting menu, served at the chef’s bar, offers a good value and the best seat in the house.
