Whether you're on a budget and opting for fast-casual or looking for a splurge, this neighborhood has a gem around every corner.

Eat

Head to the sprawling District plaza for healthy breakfast and lunch eats at Rachel's Kitchen or Skinny Fats. Both feature menus with a healthy slant as well as more indulgent options, ranging from salads and wraps to burgers and pasta. Me Gusta Tacos takes on your favorite hand-held meal and funks it up with fusion proteins like Korean barbecue and pork belly. You can also find killer breakfast burritos here to kick off a weekend shopping spree. King's Fish House is practically next door if you'd rather pick a fresh catch for lunch or dinner. The oyster selection is one of the best in Henderson!
