Esther’s Kitchen has a deceptively strong bar menu for a casual Italian spot in Downtown Las Vegas. They mix classics with creative drinks like the Pie Felicia, a sour made with blueberry-infused bourbon and lavender bitters, and they have plenty of bottles of wine as well as affordable by-the-glass options, most around $9-10. If you order a drink at the bar, you can enjoy Pastaholics Anonymous from 5-7pm and 9-11pm when all pastas are half-off. Just make sure you come early since it’s first come, first served and there are only 10 seats.

Flock & Fowl
Flock and Fowl’s Hainanese chicken and rise is the best reason to go to Downtown Vegas.
The Kitchen at Atomic
The Kitchen at Atomic downtown is the perfect one-two punch, come here for the varied menu of American food and then go next door to Atomic Liquors.
Gritz Cafe probably belongs more in the South than in downtown Las Vegas, but you’ll be grateful for their all-day Southern breakfast menu.

Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar
Ferraro’s right off the Strip is your quintessential Italian spot - open since 1985 and serving handmade pastas.
