Michael Klein reports today in his Inqlings column that Philadelphia’s origninal nuevo-Latin restaurant, ¡Pasion! has closed.

Last call after 8 1/2 years at 211 S. 15th St. was Saturday. Co-owner Michael Dombkoski, who said business was off, is cleaning up and working the phones to cancel reservations.

Guillermo Pernot, Dombkoski’s partner is working with Cuba Libre where he has been overhauling their menu.
