Saving the Animals and Eating the Vegetables in Kanab


Best Friends Animal Sanctuary has become the biggest attraction and largest employer in Kanab and now, thanks to its hundreds of visitors, Kanab is slowly becoming a dining hotspot. (Mostly vegetarian, of course. The town is all about the animals.) The newest spot is called Peekaboo Canyon Wood Fired Kitchen, it’s located inside the Flagstone Boutique Inn & Suites and it’s run by none other than longtime Salt Lake City chef Kathie Chadbourne—last seen as proprietor of Avenues Bistro on Third. The menu focuses on artisanal pizza from the wood fired oven, but there is a full menu, including mac & cheese, cassoulet and the Impossible Burger in several iterations. Lots of the food can be made vegan and there’s a nice list of wine and beer and even craft cocktails. Not to mention desserts. Open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
