The bi-level signature restaurant at the Lake Powell Resort occupies a cavernous round room affording 270-degree views of the lake, surrounding vermilion cliffs, and massive Navajo Mountain in the distance. Serving the best food in the region, the kitchen focuses on organic, healthful ingredients in producing such toothsome dishes as a maple-peppercorn pork chop with smoked bacon, wild mushroom–and–goat cheese bread pudding, wilted greens, and smoked-chile aioli; and
pecan-crusted salmon with creamy green-chile rice, heirloom tomato–corn salad, and a smoky cumin–lime vinaigrette. There's an expansive breakfast buffet in the mornings, but you can also order à la carte. When Rainbow Room is closed in the winter, you can dine at the resort's casual Driftwood Lounge restaurant.
