Fremont East may still be the coolest stroll in town for cocktails, but just a block to the south, Carson Avenue has emerged as Downtown’s top dining drag. Start just east of Las Vegas Boulevard at Kerry Simon’s Carson Kitchen, and before the end of the block you can stop to grab a doughnut at O Face or perhaps some sushi at Bocho. The next block offers the adjacent VegeNation, Glutton and Zydeco Po-Boys. And on opposite sides of the intersection at Carson and Seventh Street, you’ll find Natalie Young’s breakfast and lunch spot Eat, plus the back entrance to The Perch in Container Park. If you’re keeping score, that’s one street, barely two blocks and eight diverse restaurants.
