“Inspired by the bounty of the West Coast and the traditions of Italy,” neighborhood restaurant Esther’s Kitchen offers a tasty menu of Italian favorites on Casino Center Blvd Downtown. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported earlier this year that the restaurant is planning a move into a larger space on Main St. Paperwork recently submitted to the Las Vegas Planning Commission confirms that the restaurant plans to move into a new space at 1131 S Main St.
A justification letter submitted with the paperwork ascribes the move to the restaurant’s success and growth, saying, “This expansion will allow [Chef] James Trees and his staff to prepare the large volume of food required for the size of this restaurant and will also allow them to expand upon baking their signature breads.”
“It’s a really incredible building, and we’re going to try and stay as authentic to the building as it exists now,” Eric Gladstone, a spokesperson for the restaurant, told the Review-Journal. “Nothing’s getting knocked down; we like that building.”
In its current location, Esther’s Kitchen offers brunch, lunch, dinner. The dinner menu opens with Housemade Sourdough Bread, offered in a number of varieties, including Cambozola (blue cheese + walnut + pickled grapes) and Fegatini (chicken liver and foie gras + saba + strawberry). What follows is an exciting selection of Naturally Leavened Pizzas, pastas, and entrees that include the Merguez Pizza (spicy lamb sausage + chorizo + pomodoro + fontina), Bucatini (guanciale + red onion + chili + white wine + amatriciana), and Beef and Pork Meatballs.
A number of seasonal dishes are also available.
What Now Las Vegas was unable to reach Chef James Trees for comment on Monday. No timeline is available for the opening of the new location.
