Urban Neighborhood Dining

Downtown Las Vegas

Opening in 2014, Carson Kitchen was the creation of Las Vegas' hometown favorite Chef Kerry Simon and restaurateur Cory Harwell. The plan, to develop the first urban casual eatery, inside the re-purposed mid-century John E. Carson Hotel - a skeleton of Downtown Las Vegas' yesteryears, now home to its eclectic mix of tenants including a sushi bar, tattoo parlor, pilates studio, creative agencies, donut & coffee bar and Chef Simon's playful interpretations on American comfort food.

The renovated space, showcased by hand-crafted solid butcher block countertops throughout, provides multiple atmospheres to indulge including a swanky bar, the open kitchen expo counter, a community table and the outdoor rooftop patio and bar - yes, that's two bars to choose from. Guests can also take in a cocktail and relax in the now preserved 1950's hotel courtyard, fully outfitted with a lava rock fire pit.

If you're looking for an alternative to The Strip's offerings and simply want to get back to basics of creative comfort, Carson Kitchen will bring you back to a time when your grandparents visited Las Vegas.

    "Simply put, Kerry Simon’s new restaurant is the most exciting thing to happen to the Downtown dining scene. It also offers the most interesting food we’ve seen from the superstar chef in years."

    "Calling Carson Kitchen a trailblazer is an understatement. It not only blazed a trail, it started a revolution. There are at least a dozen great spots to eat in Downtown now, all of which owe a debt of gratitude to the vision of Cory and Kerry"
