COVID-19 Update

Re-opening Soon

As the world continues to be impacted by COVID-19, our thoughts go out to those who have been affected by this virus. We believe it’s our role and responsibility to prioritize the health and safety of our customers and team while also supporting local health and government officials as they work to contain this virus. With this at the forefront of our minds, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Carson Kitchen. Since we opened, Carson Kitchen has prioritized community, and that will not change in these uncertain times. It is our intent to reopen soon.

In the meantime, we urge you to take personal steps to prevent the spread of this virus suggested by the CDC, WHO and local health officials from around the country. We appreciate your understanding, and we will see you soon!

Urban Neighborhood Dining

Downtown Las Vegas

Specializing in creative American cuisine and thoughtfully crafted cocktails, Carson Kitchen is a cornerstone of the Downtown Las Vegas dining scene. Carson Kitchen is built on a philosophy of reimagined comfort food prepared with approachable fine-dining ingredients.

The restaurant opened in 2014, a partnership between chef and restaurateur Cory Harwell and his dear friend, the late chef Kerry Simon. Designed to bring a carefully curated experience to our unique neighborhood, Carson Kitchen features a contemporary bar, open kitchen expo counter, community tables, and an outdoor rooftop and bar. Guests can also take in a cocktail and relax in the courtyard of our home in the repurposed mid-century John E. Carson Hotel.

    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
