Final touches are being put on the Village’s newest restaurant as Bobby’s Deerfield tentatively plans to open Oct. 16 in downtown Deerfield, according to co-owner Bobby Arifi. He calls the eatery an American bistro with an Italian influence.
Arifi is awaiting final approval from the Village with nearly all work complete and employees energetically training to greet customers when they arrive next week. Wine was arriving Monday to be inserted into a wood and glass cabinet the public can see in the dining room.

“We’re waiting for final approval from the Village and we’re ready to rock and roll,” Arifi said. The restaurant will initially be open for dinner and will serve lunch within a few weeks. “We want to work out all the bugs.”
Once lunch and dinner are served to diners according to Arifi’s standards, the establishment will offer carry out service as well.
Arifi and his brother, Augie Arifi, also own and operate Cafe Lucci in Glenview.
