Story about Miki's Konoba
Miki Bratanic konoba is a symbol of all konobas, those which are gone and have long since closed their doors, but primarily those that still maintain their old luster and live their lives of times past.
The Bratanić family konoba is the first and thus-far only konoba to bear the status of ‘Protected cultural heritage of the Republic of Croatia”. It is a symbol of all konobas, those which are gone and have long since closed their doors, but primarily those that still maintain their old luster and live their lives of times past.
It is not a restaurant, or a pizzeria, nor a cafe, or any form of catering establishment. It is simply the konoba; a way of life, the meaning of life, philosophy, poetry, etc, something that must be experienced.
In it imaginary doors open leading to a make-believe world in which time moves slowly, people were happier and healthier, and were content with little.
Even though our grandfather’s barrels lie empty today, one can still find a bit of wine with which the story of the konoba gains another dimension. This dimension links yesterday and today, showing us that yesterday cannot return, but that we can at least live tomorrow a little like yesterday. We can at least try and be content with little, at least eat a little more healthy, live at least a little slower, just a little bit. And a little is often a lot.
