THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Courthouse Brasserie Restaurant Review:


Diners press a buzzer to be admitted to this little jewel box of a dining room, its ten tables seating only 38 for Ravi Dhanjal's meticulous dishes. The menu remains the same as it has been for ten years, not because Dhanjal can't come up with new ideas, but because his loyal patrons love the dishes they've savored over the years and won't let him change them. Dishes include oven-poached lemon sole stuffed with seafood, tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach in one of the feather-light cream sauces that are the chef-proprietor's specialty. Rack of lamb and beef tenderloin in wine sauce are other recommended dishes. The house soup is a creation of Dhanjal's, an herb and curry-flavored blend he calls Philadelphia clam chowder. The wine list is a fifty-fifty assortment of French and California wines. The brasserie part of the restaurant's name is a misnomer. This is not a noisy, lively brasserie but a quiet, highly civilized hideaway with classical music wafting over the antique chandeliers and chairs that once graced the lobby of the nearby vintage movie palace, the now-restored Fox Theatre.
