A Sandwich for the Season

THE PERFECT CHANGE-OF-SEASON MEAL for a late-September evening is the open-faced Lobster sammy at Jax Fish House—not too heavy, not too light. Sweet, sustainably sourced Maine lobster is super-satisfying atop tangy, buttered sourdough. There’s just enough tenderness and fat to contrast with the crunch and saltiness of pickled celery, cornichons, and thinly shaved radish. A preserved-lemon aioli adds sunniness and pucker, and house fries on the side are perfect for soaking up any extra sauce. Add a cup of New England-style clam chowder if you like, and wash it all down with a great local brew—Jax has several on tap. Bonus: Mondays mean happy hour prices all night. 123 North College Ave., 970-682-2275, Shawna Jackson Van
