Comfort food is king when it comes to the latest food trends, and the best restaurants are taking it to a new level. Jax Kitchen playfully twists your favorite comfort-food classics into modern, classy versions, like the crab Louie devil'd eggs, or "breakfast for lunch." The crowning achievement just might be the classic Kobe burger with fries—juicy beefy goodness topped with salty, savory bacon jam; robust whole-grain aioli; and tangy house-made pickles. The owners and chefs at Jax Kitchen really elevate classic American food with playful new versions of great standbys. Oh, and the mac 'n' cheese? It's killer.
