Geronimo on Canyon Road, Santa Fe

Tuesday June 14
We spent the day wandering around Santa Fe, seeing everything from San Miguel to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum (Warning!  Almost no Georgia O'Keefes!), and having lunch with Winifred at the venerable and beloved restaurant, The Shed.  A bowl of green...aaaahhh.
But in the evening, we drove out to the galleries around Canyon Road, home of one of the hot restaurants in Santa Fe, Geronimo.  
We sat on the porch in the sunset, and enjoyed the atmosphere of luxury that hot restaurants afford, along with a Sainsbury 2008 Chardonnay. 
Started with a savory minted gazpacho with shrimp and smoked salmon, and a very clever battered softshell crab "BLT" on brioche. 

 Mains were sea bass topped with wasabi on shiitake mushrooms and ramen noodles, and elk with truffled sauce, button mushrooms, bacon and garlic mash.
Verdict: Geronimo's is a sweet dream, and you won't need dessert.
