For the past fifteen years, the original Jax Fish House, at 928 Pearl Street in Boulder, has been feeding fish heads to the finicky (and spawning a Top Chef victor, but you already know all about that), a feat that's being marked through the week as part of a fifteenth anniversary celebration.
From now until Thursday, November 5, Jax-Boulder is making waves with a sea of specials, including 15 oysters for $15; $5 strawberry lemonades; $14 wine flights; throwback and modern cocktails for $6; and two prix fixe menus, one of which focuses on favorite Jax dishes from the past, while the other menu is all about Ho-Se-A Rosenberg, that guy (and the exec chef at Jax) who won a hundred thousand smackers on Top Chef and marshaled the University of Colorado's homecoming parade this past weekend.
To view the menus, or for more details on Jax's anniversary events, go to www.jaxfishhouseboulder.com or call 303-444-1811.
