good food in Moab?

We recently returned from a trip through Utah's National Parks (after extensive dining research on this site and others) , and we thought our meal at the Desert Bistro in Moab was the best of of the trip (and we had some awesome meals). Innovative combinations of ingredients that really worked well together, everything clearly homemade, in an historic building with beautiful grounds. LOVED our meal!
We went back to Eklecticafe twice because we enjoyed the fresh delicious lunches (road trips can offer up some pretty unhealthy options!), and we also enjoyed a dinner at Miguel's Baja Grill.

Zion National Park - any suggestions?

Just returned from Springdale, and having extensively researched dining options (and tried them) I agree with those who recommended Whiptail Grill (just tried to replicate spaghetti squash enchiladas at home because they were so delicious) for lunch, and Bit and Spur for dinner (the only place I was able to find a Margarita NOT made with a corn-syrup mix). We were disappointed by the Spotted Dog; it seemed as if they were trying to be a fancy restaurant but the food seemed out of place among more authentic Southwestern options. Oscars offered delicious salad and fish tacos (again, atmosphere better for lunch than dinner). Zion Pizza and Noodle was just OK, we were told that the Flying Monkey had better pizza. Skip dining at the Zion Lodge (although you should definitely tap the free spring water dispensers!)Enjoy!

Twisted spoke or other party venue?

no answer on Ogden, phone at Lakeview location disconnected. Emails through the website bounced back. Sooo, it's not looking good...

Twisted spoke or other party venue?

Does anyone know if Twisted Spoke on Ogden has closed? And, any recommendations for an alternate 40th birthday party venue for about 40 people on a Saturday night in June? Preferably with delicious, burgers & fries type food, and an outdoor space that might accomodate a small band...
