Jansen is one of those fine-dining spots that never leaves you wondering if the bill is worth it. This renovated 18th-century cottage has historic charm emanating from its cozy interior to the backyard garden. And the food—like the spicy mahi mahi jambalaya with a smoked paprika shellfish jus—is the best in Mt. Airy. Grab a few glasses of wine, an order of oysters, share the braised lamb shank, and be thankful to be in a neighborhood where the PPA rarely comes.
