Sussex saw several new businesses open in 2011, and Patch is wondering which places have already become favorites.
Editor's Note: This article was updated to include Fitness Revolution. A number of new businesses opened during 2011 in Sussex, and while each addition brings value to the community, it's likely a favorite or two have surfaced. Have you made up your mind yet? Let us know in the poll below.

The long awaited new restaurant has quietly opened its doors with a grand opening celebration slated for the near future.
It was approved by the Village Board in June, owners were interviewed by Patch in July and rumors of plans to open in August proved false. But now, Boneyard Pub & Grille has finally opened its doors to customers. The restaurant first had a soft opening on Nov. 16 to work out all the kinks, and then officially opened its doors on Black Friday to customers. While no grand opening has been planned, the business says one is still in the works. A grand opening, however, hasn’t stopped eager customers from noticing the restaurant opened. Employees say once the electronic sign read “Now Open,” people started pouring in. The pub & grille itself has three bars, two dining areas, two private banquet areas and enough high-tech gadgetry to make any …

The Boneyard Pub & Grille is looking to open up a location in Sussex at the former Seigo’s Steakhouse at N64W23180 Main St. Jim Jones, owner of The Boneyard, said he’s planning to open up a location by August, if he gains approval from village officials. He said the Sussex restaurant would have the same menu as the location at 215 Bay View Rd., Mukwonago. “It’s a very similar town as Mukwonago,” Jones said of his decision to choose Sussex. “We like the western suburbs and it fits our cliental well. Plus, with the schools close by it would fit well because we do a lot of stuff with them. “We also thought (our restaurant) is something they were lacking up there, so it’s a good fit," he added. The Boneyard offers a wide variety of menu …
