There was a review of Racion in the local newspaper and I could not wait to try it. I have heard Anthony Bourdain talk about Spanish modern cuisine and knew this was as close as I was goung to get to try it.
Tacion has a Happy hour from 5-6 and we were able to arrive close to 5 pm. Good thing as the food is extremely slow to arrive. There were three tables of two when I arrived and each dish took over half an hour after I ordered (we ordered one dish at a time).
There are two menus- a tasting menu ($50) and a regular menu. The a la carte menu and the happy hour menu are the same, but the dishes cost $7 from 5-6 and $11 after that time. There are 6 dishes on the menu The tasting menu has some of the same dishes burt also some other dishes and a desert. I believe the menu changes weekly but may be wrong.
The restaurant is very attractive in a modern way-- a 15 seat bar with an open kitchen. from the bar you can watch then two cooks prepare the food which was not as interesting to watch as I had hoped. There are also other tables where you cannot watch the kitchen easily.
Each dish was extremely tasty but small so I do not recomend expecting to share dishes.
There is a limited liquor and wine menu and an interesting cocktail menu.
It was fun and delicious to visit and I do recommend this restaurat but I am not sure that I shall return.
