Geronimo

Owing its name to original tenant Geronimo López, who dwelled in the Canyon Road adobe in the 1700s, Geronimo is arguably the signature of Santa Fe's culinary refinement. Specializing in "global eclectic" dishes, everything from Maryland blue crab cakes ($17) with caviar dill sauce and braised baby leaks to sea bass ($37) served atop a delicate bed of lobster miso-bathed ramen, adorn the menu. Be blown away by the likes of Telicherry-rubbed tenderloin ($42)—a hearty cut resting on garlic fork-mashed potatoes and paired with creamy brandied mushroom sauce that make any occasion here a truly special one. A solid vegetarian tasting menu is also at hand. Room for dessert? Try the housemade ice cream and sorbet trio ($9) that'll make you turn your nose up to Baskin-Robbins for life or the fresh Meyer lemon crepe ($12) that will leave your taste buds singing, dancing and begging for more. Bon appétit!

Artman Productions

on Cordova Road is closing its doors and selling the space to neighbors

Maria's of Santa Fe

. Also on that street,

Paper Dosa

’s brick-and-mortar locale is set to open by the end of the month. Are you, like many of us, experiencing

Tecolote

bread basket withdrawals? The venerable eatery recently posted on its Facebook page that permit approval is on its last leg and their revamped St. Mike’s location should be ready for its close-up “Soon, soon, soon, soon.” Fans of

Krispy Kreme

should follow them on Twitter (

) to be kept in the glazed loop about when their Cerrillos Road location opens. In the mood for a killer spicy green juice or kale pineapple smoothie?

Modern General

(pictured) is here to serve, next to Vinaigrette.

All dressed up and nowhere to go?
