Dinner at Jax Fish House

Jax Fish House (not to be confused with Jax Mercantile, Co.) brings us fresh seafood with a special knack for oysters and cocktails. Chef de Cuisine, Kevin Grossi has an impressive dedication to quality. This is one of the few (if the only) kitchen staff that I know of taking a field trip to small Fort Collins farms to become familiar with our farmers, produce, community, and incorporating that in an ever changing seasonal menu. You want to support local food? Eat at Jax Fish House.
