Fodor's Expert Review Terra
Among the many reasons guests of the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado often find it difficult to ever leave the gloriously situated property is this handsome yet down-to-earth restaurant that serves tantalizingly delicious and creative contemporary American and Southwestern cuisine. A specialty here is the exquisitely plated seafood, from ahi tuna and beef carpaccio to grilled prawns with cucumber "spaghetti," wild mushrooms, prickly pear pesto, macadamia crumbs, and bacon. Other dishes reflect a more Southwestern approach, including green chile–roasted chicken breast with heirloom-tomato concasse. The high-ceilinged dining room is lined with tall windows overlooking the mountains, and a side bar with a patio and fire pit is a fun hangout for cocktails and lighter bar nibbles.
