THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Courtright's Restaurant Review

: In the southwest suburbs --- or anywhere, for that matter --- Courtright's is a fine-dining establishment worth a visit. The seasonally changing menu does a pleasant ramble through a cuisine toeing a line between sensibly creative contemporary and regional American, as interpreted by France-born executive chef Jerome Bacle. The range is extensive, with everything from a foie gras terrine to snail cassoulet. Dishes we’ve enjoyed include Swan Creek duck breast with roasted quince compote, caramelized maple rutabaga, cranberries and cashews as well as venison loin with honey-glazed apples, chestnuts, cinnamon-scented butternut mousseline and huckleberry sauce. The window tables look out onto a forest preserve, so snag one if you can and begin by perusing the topnotch wine list. Note that seasonal hours may be in effect January through March, so watch for potential Monday and Tuesday closures.
