We had dinner for nine at this charming restaurant inside the La Posada Hotel in Santa Fe. For some reason, I was expecting a menu emphasizing Latin American dishes. That is not the current menu! My son and I each had a cup of the cold avocado-cucumber-lobster soup. A very interesting concept, and the combination of flavors was very good. Still, the soup needed either more lobster or more kick. Call it a work in progress and hope for improvement in the future. I had the Ancho Relleno, which seemed to be a smoked (?) poblano pepper or two stuffed with a fascinating two bean mixture all floating on a nice row of perfectly uniform and well prepared asparagus over a sea of blended cauliflower. I have to say that beans, poblanos, asparagus, and cauliflower are four of my very favorite vegetable flavors. Still, the first taste of this dish was a little disconcerting. By the time I finished, I was liking it more, but still it seems like a work in progress. I hope for improvement in the future. Several in our party had sandwiches, which seemed like fine choices from this menu but not really a 5-star offering in my view. The service was friendly and capable, the wine list was good, and the speed of service was well within norms. Overall, we had a good experience. Fuego seems like a work in progress, and we are hoping for something better next time we go.
