Chef De Cuisine Matt Lewis
Jax Fish House and Oyster Bar
Born and raised in Cheyenne, WY, Matt made his way to the Mile High City to attend Johnson and Wales University. Although school was not his strong suit, cooking certainly was (!) and he put his nose to the grindstone in some of Denver’s finest kitchens: North Modern Italian, Russell’s Smokehouse, and Bones. Now at the helm of Jax, Matt brings some serious talent, hard-won know-how, and a head full of fresh ideas to the table. His dedication and ingenuity recently won him a Zagat 30 under 30 award as one of the best young chefs in Colorado. When he’s not behind the burners at Jax, Matt enjoys seeking out new restaurants in Denver, cheering on his beloved Broncos, and playing golf.
