I was cleaning out my inbox the other day when I noticed an email about our discontinued line of Habana-covered planners. (The Habana notebooks are alive and well, never fear!) The reader was disappointed, but unfortunately, the covers didn’t do well, and there’s not much chance we’ll be able to bring them back.
It’s always sad when products you love don’t sell — though hopefully, it’s also an opportunity to find something you like even better. Still, if there was one thing you could bring back from the dead, what would it be? I’d bring back not a product but a place, a restaurant that closed a couple years ago in my old Brooklyn neighborhood called O Barone. The food was delicious, the chef/owner was enthusiastic and sweet, and the decor was … well, pretty bland, which probably contributed to its demise. Still, though I don’t live there anymore, it would make me happy to know that he was still making beef tagliata.
What would you resuscitate?
