Patch wanted to know what its readers thought about restaurants which did not make Yelp’s top 10. Here are the results.
Readers spoke in no uncertain terms when Patch published a list of Yelp’s top 10 Deerfield eateries and again when we wanted to know the favorites among those which did not make the list. Though the poll was unscientific, what was clear from reader comments is they are passionate about what they like. Earlier: What Is Deerfield’s Best Restaurant Yelp Forgot Of the 22 people who responded to the poll, 14 chose Trax Tavern & Grill, two each picked Abruzzo, Carson’s and Rhapsody Café while Rosebud and Tony’s Subs each got a vote. One reader complimented Trax’s new menu items. “Trax is another great restaurant in Deerfield,” Carly C writes. “We used to go to Carson's for ribs. But ever since Trax put in their own smokehouse we go there for …

Patch reporter samples its quality cuisine and ambiance.
Two new Italian restaurants have opened on Waukegan Road near the center of town during the past couple of weeks. Both newcomers are making an impression on local diners. They join the well-regarded Italian Kitchen, a favorite with many over the years. I haven’t tried Rosebud Restaurant yet. It’s located at the former Baker Square restaurant next to the Fire Station, but I’m looking forward to dining there soon. However, wife Dorothy and I enjoyed a delightful lunch with our longtime friends Bill and Janie Seiden at Biaggi’s. It just opened this week in the former location of Stoney River in Deerfield Square. We were greeted warmly upon arrival at the reception desk, and quickly were escorted to our reserved table. The interior walk-…
