Fodor's Review

With just the right blend of culinary inventiveness, upbeat energy, and value, Jax serves up modern comfort food in a cozy, sophisticated setting more reminiscent of Chicago or Boston than the Sonoran Desert. Their unique versions of "street tacos" (made with duck confit and corn with chile cream) and tomato soup with grilled Brie and Gruyère cheeses are heavenly, and the daily fish entrée is served with Meyer lemon–infused risotto. The dining room is cleverly divided by a half wall, so conversation still feels intimate even when the place is bustling. Save room for the red velvet cake or milk and cookies like your mother never served—a plate of assorted warm cookies surrounding a cup of bourbon-spiked milk to dip them in. You'll want to make a reservation here, even on weeknights.
