Eat CO's tastiest seafood while staring at the mountains
Not just the most efficient way to greet Nicholson and White at the same time, Hi^Jax is also a 115-seat sky-high patio, serving up some of the freshest, finest seafood served in CO, all paired with sweet mountain views and sunshine.
Hi^Jax has a separate menu from the sibling resto (Jax Glendale) it sits atop, and it's worth heading upstairs for dishes like the Blackened Grilled Shrimp, tossed on a kabob with andouille sausage, and placed atop a zesty seafood remoulade.
There're plenty of places to sit and enjoy the mountain views...
... which can be quite nice. Montana ain't got s**t on our big sky.
Before diving into plates of seafood, start off light-ish with malt vinegar-dusted chips and a Pimento cheese dip made from piquillo peppers, cream cheese, crème fraîche, and cheddar.
PEI mussels couple nicely with tomatoes, grilled bread, and spicy chorizo.
Knock back one of the Austrian Berger Gruner Veltliner white/ Zweigelt red wines served from 1L bottles into tumblers, but not tumblrs, because it's impossible to drink wine from inside a One Direction fanpage.
Also pairing well with seafood are local taps from Dry Dock, Avery, and Funkwerks, or house-made sangria.
If you're not in a seafood mood, order up a Colorado Best Beef Burger, a dry-aged, all-natural work of art between two buns. Pair that puppy with a Belgium Stiegl beer from a can and there'll be nothing that can hi jax your beautiful evening.
