Bobby’s Deerfield Takes Next Step

Townhouse replacement starts Village review process.

Signs are up advertising the arrival of Bobby’s Deerfield, and the Village’s newest proposed eatery has begun Deerfield’s municipal approval process.

Restaurateurs Bobby and Augie Arifi, the owners of Glenview’s Café Lucci, will present three signs for approval before the Appearance Review Commission at 7:30 p.m. August 27 at Village Hall.

The restaurant plans to open for business in October.

Bravo for taking down those hideous panels that covered the windows. That was quite possibly the dumbest thing I've ever seen a restaurant do -- hey, let's black out the windows so this restaurant that already is in challenging-to-notice location looks completely empty at all times. Genius! Can't wait for Bobby's.

I don't know....the owners of Lucci's NOT "changing his mind" and altering the menue to Italian fare is blind trust. That would give us another mattress store...excuse me....Italian restaurant. And how fair is that to long time, loyal and quality Italian Kitchen? Let me answer that: its not! Oh....a.d by the way...FYI....ABT just opened their mattress showroom so how long do you think we can remain "The mattress Capital of the United States"....(per capital) n Deer field. But what"s the alternative? A Chase Bank? This does not have to be a done deal.

I hate to sound so negative, but this place is going to be a bust. I will absolutely continue to patronize Italian Kitchen. Better business options for some of these empty stores? Bring Bath & Body Works back. Bring The Children's Place back - they always had a crowd. Put in a Kriser's Pet Food store. They are a very successful business and in a highly dog-friendly town like Deerfield, they'd do really well. I live about 2 blocks from downtown Deerfield and miss being able to walk to "town" and spend a few hours shopping or just looking. Now all I see are stores that don't appeal to me (and apparently most residents) or empty storefronts. Sad...

Yes, the problem we have now is that what business would want to open in the downtown? The rent is expensive, the visibility is bad, and everyone else is leaving.

Cafe Lucci patrons are thrilled about the new digs for Bobby and Augie! This is not your run-of-the-mill Italian restaurant. I can't say the same for Italian Kitchen. Can't wait ti it opens! The food will speak for itself!
