Fodor's Expert Review Geronimo
This bastion of dazzling, sophisticated contemporary cuisine occupies the Borrego House, a massive-walled Canyon Road adobe dating from 1756 with intimate white dining rooms, beamed ceilings, wood floors, fireplaces, and cushioned bancos (banquettes). It's one of the loveliest venues in New Mexico for a special meal, perhaps local rack of lamb with roasted leeks and a Merlot–natural jus reduction, or Hawaiian ahi sashimi and tartare with buttermilk scallion cakes. Desserts are artful and rich—note the caramel chocolate decadence, with raspberry panna cotta, raspberry sorbet, chocolate cake and a wild-strawberry sauce. The restaurant is renowned for both its cuisine and its highly refined service, along with steep prices to match. In summer you can dine under the front portal; in winter the bar with fireplace is inviting. For a less formal experience, dine in the dark, seductive bar—the cocktails are excellent.
