Open since 1995, Courtright's is known as an impeccable dinner destination with hard-to-resist desserts, well-schooled service and a stellar wine list. The elegant, warm dining room has picture windows overlooking a forest preserve, as well as a fireplace, murals and carvings. French chef Jerome Bacle joined Courtright's in October 2008, bringing with him a new fall menu featuring tuna tartare with pickled cranberries, sauteed mahi mahi with orzo and roasted rack of lamb with gingerbread puree. The spot has a huge wine cellar, stocked with 17,000 bottles collected over the last 30 years from all over the world. Often host to celebratory dinners and weddings, the garden gazebo provides a picture-perfect backdrop.
