Carson Kitchen

Rock star chef Kerry Simon ventures to the burgeoning downtown Las Vegas restaurant scene with affordable, upscale comfort food - Gourmet burgers, flatbreads & other small plates in sleek digs with a rooftop patio for live music.


“Rock ‘n’ roll chef” Kerry Simon (Prime, Simon Kitchen & Bar) brings his gourmet comfort foods – beef Wellington empanadas, jerk turkey burgers, wild mushroom flatbreads – to this Downtown American in the former John E. Carson Hotel space. On the drinks side, microbrewed cocktails and an array of small-batch brews and global wines. The moderately priced lunch and dinner small plates are dished up in a loftlike interior, now rustic-chic with lots of reclaimed wood and steel, plus a rooftop patio with live music.
