First Chow bit the dust. Domino collapsed this year, and culinary giant Gourmet became toast soon after (both were in Condé Nast’s publishing portfolio). And now Metropolitan Home is shutting its doors, which I discovered when I tried to renew my subscription online a few weeks ago. “Sadly, Metropolitan Home is no longer being published. If you have questions about your existing subscription, please contact customer service.” It callously recommended that I subscribe to Elle Decor instead. Sure! Can I have it delivered right up their publisher’s ass?
