Jax Fish House PR gal Kate Baird saw last year's changing of the guard at the James Beard House as a great opportunity for top Jax toques Sheila Lucero and Hosea Rosenberg. So she asked the duo to collaborate on a sample menu and sent it off to new Beard program director Izabela Wojcik, who gave it a big thumbs-up. Following in the footsteps of a stampede of Colorado cooks, Lucero and Rosenberg will go to New York on October 11, but today they'll present a trial run of their James Beard House Dinner at the Boulder Jax, 928 Pearl Street.
"The dry run is a chance for them to present the menu to the local community and work out any kinks," Baird notes, though it's also a chance for Jax regulars to celebrate: Starting with stacked Dungeness crab and winding up with a big sticky dessert of Ela Farm caramel apples, this is one din-din to die for.
The price is $75; seatings begin at 4 p.m. Make reservations at 303-444-1811 or www.jaxfishhouseboulder.com.
