Trendy, affordable, and delectable, Carson Kitchen [124 S 6th St, Las Vegas, NV 89101] should be your dinner choice before exploring Fremont Street. The restaurant in located on a quiet corner, but it’s anything but hushed inside. The place was packed, but we scooted in to a table for two without a reservation after just a few minutes. There are all sorts of seating options here. Inside, outside, upstairs on the rooftop, at the bar on the rooftop, and there are heating lamps and different sources of warmth all over.
We weren’t terribly hungry, but needed a little something to get us through the evening. We decided on a few small plates to share, and our edgy hips waitress served us. First were the chicken skins with smoked honey sauce. You can use your imagination, this dish needs no flattering words.
The serving looked a bit small though when unraveled there were quite a few of these small succulent shrimp. They were cooked perfectly and coated with a tangy rocoto sauce, a few scattered jalapeños and a zesty garnish. They were positively addictive. Lastly and on the healthier side we ordered the succotash which was out of this world!
A dish I had never had before, but would certainly love to encounter again. It was composed of veggies such as corn, lima beans, peas jazzed up with crema fresca, feta, fresh herbs and excellent spices. This dish is packed with phenomenal flavor and texture. The small plates were just the right amount of food for us to share, and even though we weren’t starving we still got to experience what this excellent restaurant had to offer. The food was top notch and we definitely felt like we were a part of the scene here. Just around the corner from Fremont Street, we walked off our meal and had a fantastic evening.
