I was just digging around in the archives and came across this post George Lewis put up almost three years ago. He writes:
Imagine you had the power–a genie in a bottle of Chateau Latour Pomerol to grant you one wish. If you could rub her it and be granted the gift to bring one dead restaurant back to life, which one would you revive and why? Riviera? Routh Street? Nero’s?
The results were interesting: after 146 genie rubs, Lola, Il Sorrento, and Ciudad were the top three. I might pick Youngblood’s Fried Chicken or maybe Calluaud’s. Or Ewald’s. Or Phil’s Delicatessen. And you?
