Downtown is about to get a new restaurant for lunch, dinner and even brunch on Sundays from a former Red Rock Resort chef. Bradley Manchester plans to debut Glutton with a menu of New American cuisine, opening next month.

The restaurant joins neighbors Eat, the Downtown Container Park, Bocho and Carson Kitchen in the growing cluster of eating spots on Carson Avenue.

Manchester plans to use a wood-burning oven for his roasted meats and vegetables, sea bream with fennel seed as well as an arugula and almond wood-fired flatbread topped with goat cheese, robiola, shishito, honey and pesto. Glutton partnered with local farms for its herbs and greens found in a shaved apple and celery salad, served with torn herbs, crushed hazelnuts, Manchego cheese and a Riesling vinaigrette as well as the shaved Brussels sprouts with kale, dill, shaved fennel, parmesan and tahini vinaigrette.

Other dishes teased include a lamb ragu with smoked pappardelle, rapini pesto and ricotta salata and Buffalo-style sweetbreads with pickled celery and whipped bleu cheese. A charcuterie plate will feature chicken liver mousse, house-made head cheese, La Quercia Rosa, mustard, pickles and toast.

Manchester plans to feature desserts with wood-roasted fruits and homemade ice cream such as apple and olive oil upside-down cake with spiced pecan streusel and cider ice cream.

Glutton also plans to serve up barrel-aged cocktails, such as the Glutton for Punishment, composed of Seagram’s gin, Cointreau and Krogstad aquavit, as well as six craft beers on draft, more beers and ciders in cans and bottles, and wines.

Find Glutton at the corner of Carson Avenue and Seventh Street in the former Sears building. The renovated midcentury building retained the original oak ceiling from its original 1955 construction. Stained concrete floors, exposed brick and a stone chef’s counter combine to create an industrial yet comfortable atmosphere. The restaurant seats approximately 78 patrons indoors and an additional 25 on an outdoor patio, where Manchester plans to grow herbs.

The restaurant will soon have two neighbors, Vegenation and Zydeco Po-Boys, also under construction.

Glutton plans to be open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for lunch and 5 to 11 p.m. for dinner. On Sundays, the restaurant will open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for brunch and 5 to 11 p.m. for dinner.
