Carson Kitchen Opens
Salt Lake City is now home to Carson Kitchen, a restaurant specializing in comfort food classics and craft cocktails. The first Carson Kitchen opened in Las Vegas in 2014 and the second is in Alpharetta, Georgie, near Atlanta. This is the third Carson Kitchen location.
Menu items range from “Devil’s” Eggs, Veal Meatballs, and Chicken Thighs with Alabama White Sauce, to Salmon with spinach pistou, Baked Mac & Cheese, Chili Cauliflower, Butter Burger, and Glazed Donut Bread Pudding.
“I fell in love with Salt Lake City a few years ago while traveling with friends and knew immediately it would be a great fit for Carson Kitchen,” said founder and chef Cory Harwell. “The energy, vibe and connectivity here aligns perfectly with what Carson Kitchen is. We are thrilled to connect to our new community and home.”
Harwell says that he draws culinary inspiration from the meals his grandmother cooked when he was growing up in Woodstock, Georgia. Harwell’s goal for this restaurant is simple: “To create a place where you can come in once a week with your friends to hang out and try some new things. Carson Kitchen isn’t for celebrating your anniversary with a $100 bottle of wine. It’s for celebrating Tuesday.”
Carson Kitchen opened in downtown Salt Lake City next door to the AC Hotel this Tuesday.
