Idiom of the Week – Week 38

Each week of 2017 we present an English idiom.

“to go back to the drawing board”: to start again from the beginning; noch einmal von vorn anfangen

Example 1:  The package design wasn’t quite what we were looking for, so we’ve asked the designer to go back to the drawing board and send us some new proposals.

Example 2:  The new dish didn’t get very good reviews from the restaurant’s patrons, so they went back to the drawing board.
