Hundred Dollar Baby goes looking for an answer to winter at ¡Pasion! and finds passion to be the missing ingredient.

All told, with two glasses of wine, tax, and tip, the meal came to $115.91—not too bad at all. But I can’t shake the feeling that my meal at ¡Pasion! lacked the very quality evident in the name. The food was generally very good, the service was friendly, and the space was as dramatic as ever. But the handle on the front door of the restaurant is an oversized exclamation point, which promises something more than that. Passion may be intangible, but it’s key to the success of any restaurant. And ¡Pasion! needs more of it these days.
