Nominated for: BEST Seafood
For over 10 years Jax has served up the finest and freshest the ocean has to offer to the masses that squeeze into the packed Pearl street hot spot. Prepare your senses for the welcoming yet wild vibe that has set JAX apart from all the rest. The famous Raw Bar offers up to a dozen different varieties of oysters on the half shell nightly. Behind the scenes, Chef Hosea Rosenberg creates innovative entrees such as wasabi pea crusted ono with seaweed salad, ginger sticky rice and blood orange beurre blanc. Or ruby red trout with sweet corn polenta, braised red cabbage and lemon-caper beurre blanc . These and many other inventive and enticing new dishes are served alongside the perennial favorites - blackened or fried catfish, damn good crab cakes, shrimp & tuna egg rolls and Tempura New Zealand Bluenose with coconut rice cake & green curry cream.
