Esther’s Kitchen – Chef James Trees | Modern Italian Cuisine in Las Vegas’s Art District

Chef James Trees is one of our favorite chefs here in Las Vegas, and he has opened up several outstanding restaurants- Esther’s Kitchen, Al Solito Posto, and Ada’s Wine Bar. All of them happen to be a few of my Vegas favorites, as well as my friends who love to dine. Esther’s Kitchen was our first introduction to Chef James’s culinary creations, when it first opened in January of 2018. It has been a restaurant that I have recommended to everyone for brunches, cocktails, dinners, and everything in-between.

Esther’s Kitchen

Esther’s Kitchen is located in the trendy and upcoming Las Vegas Arts District. This location 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.


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.
