Of all the Friday Flashbacks I post, it’s these — collections of bygone businesses or restaurants — that resonate the most.
This match collection comes courtesy of Scott Beck. He now owns Little Barn — but it’s clear the Staples High School graduate’s restaurant chops go back a long way.
Some of these are classics, like Three Bears, Mario’s, The Arrow and Ships.
Some — The Mushroom and L’Arbalète — I don’t remember at all.
Davy Jones deserves special mention. It preceded the Black Duck.
But my favorite — though I don’t remember it either — is not a restaurant at all.
Anyone know anything about The Octopus: “t-shirt and head-shop”?
Those were the days.
