The sudden onset of hunger pains is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Cut down on unfinished business with today's Groupon to The Courthouse Grille in Plymouth. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get $45 worth of Italian dinner and drinks.
- For $10, you get $25 worth of lunch fare and drinks.
The Courthouse Grille toasts the Italian culinary tradition with festive pastas, fine imported cheeses, and pitchers of sangria that are as fruity as they are fresh. Fresh basil transforms the caprese di bufala ($9.95) into a magic carpet of mozzarella that whisks dinner guests toward wish-granting filet mignons ($26.95) and mountains of risotto funghi, with mushrooms and sausage ($17.95). Lunchtime features half-pound Angus burgers ($6.95–$8.95) and other carnivore candy, such as char-grilled lamb lollipops marinated in garlic and olive oil ($3.95 each). Legume lovers can savor a vegetarian crêpe in tomato blush sauce ($9.95) or venture into fruitful territory with berry burst sangria, which teams merlot with raspberry vodka, fresh fruit, and juice inside a vacant Kool-Aid Man's skull ($7/17 oz. pitcher).
With glowing chandeliers, ruched draperies, and a toasty fireplace, The Courthouse Grille's décor exudes elegant ambience with a touch of down-home coziness. Outside, an open-air deck provides fresh eating opportunities, and the alcove grants couples enough privacy to feed each other wedges of tiramisu shaped like their favorite Rust Belt states (square $5.50, wedge $3.25).
The Courthouse Grille
Formerly Ernesto’s Country Italian Inn, The Courthouse Grille overhauled its name, menu, and interior to become the intimate Italian-American eatery it is today. While still featuring a selection of Chef Ernesto’s best-loved dishes, the menu has expanded to include eclectic cuisine such as seafood-stuffed crêpes and lobster mac ‘n’ cheese.
The restaurant's façade remains as formidable as ever, with white columns supporting porches in front of the yellow, clapboard siding. The peaks of pediments rise above arched, floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the dining room with the natural light craved by potted plants and solar-powered chefs.
