i don't use mit that much, so maybe someone else will give you a better
idea, but defining such a command would be easy:

  (defun geiser-mit-restart ()
    (geiser-repl--send "(RESTART 1)"))

and it shouldn't be complicated to extend that to take, say, a prefix
argument to specify the restart level, or to prompt for it, eg.:

  (defun geiser-mit-restart (&optional prompt)
    (interactive "P")
    (geiser-repl--send (format "(RESTART %s)" 
                               (if prompt (read-number "Level: ") 1))))

We are usually convinced more easily by reasons we have found
ourselves than by those which have occurred to others.
