Jax Fish House
Denver, CO 80246
Ask Dave Query -- chef/founder of Big Red F, which owns ten restaurants in the Boulder/Denver area – what he's most excited about at the new Jax Fish House in Cherry Creek, and his answers might surprise you: a dumbwaiter, a fish file and a floor urinal in the men's bathroom (not necessarily in that order). But this Jax is also the biggest, by far, of the four fish houses, with nearly 8,000 square feet, two street-level patios and a rooftop deck with its own menu. “It's way, way bigger than any of our other Jax restaurants, and the rooftop patio brings a whole new element to the space, as does the kitchen, which is incredibly functional," says Query, who tends to open restaurants in vintage buildings. This space -- a brand-new buildout -- is subtly nautical, with the suspended, curved wooden slats that hover above the large center bar reminiscent of a boat, while the ocean-blue walls, which extend to the gleaming subway tile in the open kitchen, are mounted with artistic sea art. And the sky-high pillars, caged with oyster shells that Query spent two months collecting -- there are thousands upon thousands of them -- are some of the most innovative conversation pieces we’ve seen in a Denver restaurant. But there’s also plenty to talk about on the menus, which include dishes unique to this Jax.

Ask for Jimmy. He was a great server and try some of there tasty tequilas. The raw bar is the way to go!
