Carson Kitchen’s menu has something for everyone, and diners can watch the chefs prepare each course.
Most of my favorite restaurants are on the Strip, but Carson Kitchen has become my go-to place when my husband and I are downtown.
With a menu describing the offerings as “creative American cuisine,” the restaurant has something for everyone.
Everything on the menu is delicious, but the bacon jam with havarti and toasted baguette and the Iron Chef burger are our favorite dishes. Save room for dessert because the glazed-doughnut bread pudding is irresistible.
Carson Kitchen has a decent wine list, but it’s really known for its craft cocktails. I recommend The Bee’s Knees, a prohibition-era cocktail made with gin, lemon juice, and honey.
Whenever we dine here, we request a seat at the counter overlooking the open kitchen, which is the centerpiece of the cozy dining room, so we can watch the chefs at work.
