FWIW, you can ask them to make it for you at the restaurant mentioning 
that you used to have it there.  Often they can make it as the staff/cook
hasn't changed, but they took it off the menu in favor of something else.

In any event, it does no harm to ask, and you might be surprised and
get that favorite dish again.
