Fodor's Expert Review La Casa Sena

$$$ The Plaza American

The Southwestern-accented and Continental fare served at La Casa Sena is beautifully presented, and the scenery, especially during the warmer months, is part of the charm. Get a table on the patio surrounded by hollyhocks, flowering shrubs, and centuries-old adobe walls, or for a musical meal (evenings only), sit in the restaurant's adjacent, less-pricey Cantina, where the talented and perky staff belt out Broadway show tunes. A favorite entrée is the grilled Colorado rack of lamb, one of several delicious game options on the menu. Desserts are another strong suit here—try the distinctive red chile–chocolate "soup" with fresh strawberries, pine nuts, and cinnamon marshmallows. An on-site wineshop sells many of the estimable vintages offered on the restaurant's wine list.
