*It’s best to call and make a reservation, particularly on the weekends. Tell them your name and the occasion you’re celebrating (if any), and there will be personalized matchbooks waiting for you on your table."
*Their outdoor eating area is charming. They fill the stream running through it with trout in the summer, and a featured menu item allows you to choose your own. A waiter will bring out a net and a camera and give you a photo of you and your catch."
*Jax serves a marvelous brunch on Sundays, well worth returning for even if you’ve been there for dinner the night before."
To get to Jax from downtown Minneapolis, head east on Hennepin Avenue, cross the bridge, and turn left onto University Avenue. Proceed to 20th Avenue NE, Jax will be on your left. Parking is free at the lot across from the restaurant.
