The Skinny: Fresh Oysters are always a favorite of mine.  And of anywhere for them in Denver, Jax has the best reputation – freshest oysters, best price, Hosea Rosenberg, etc.  It’s not that they do anything special per se – in fact it’s probably that they shy away from doing anything to ruin this great seafood tradition that keeps people coming back.  Having someone in front of you cracking fresh oysters, setting them over ice, and sliding the whole tray over with horseradish, lemon, cocktail sauce, and tobasco doesn’t need any frills.  Jax has simply established itself as the place in Denver to get this done right.
