In the last several years that I have lived in Las Vegas, the Arts District has been undergoing a tasteful gentrification with luxury condominiums, art galleries, fun retro stores, and impressive dining establishments. Not many tourists know about this neighborhood, so us locals get to indulge in this up and coming Las Vegas area for a little while yet. Although, I do know of locals who are bringing visitors to this area, which I am grateful for. There is more to Las Vegas food than what is on The Strip.
I have a feeling that it will be quite soon when the Arts District will be visited by those who are already checking out Downtown LV. Those who are looking for inspirational dining by local chefs and just a quick Uber trip from the Las Vegas Strip.
Esther’s Kitchen has been one of those great restaurants that has been a staple in the Arts District for several years. It has been a favorite place for my friends and I. We have celebrated birthdays here, as well as girl brunches and dinners. It was the first restaurant that I went to once the Covid restrictions had lifted to 50% occupancy, and the last place I had dinner when the ‘Three Week Pause’ was announced. It is a solid Las Vegas restaurant.
Esther’s Kitchen serves up a modern take to Italian favorites using fine and seasonal ingredients. They also boast an impressive wine list and cocktail menu, for those who like a bit more indulgence. For current menu offerings, please visit their website- Esther’s Kitchen.
