Where's Mel Brooks when you need him ?
This article from Reuters says it's like if 'The Producers'
had opened an eatery.....
MUMBAI (Reuters) - A new restaurant in India's financial hub,
named after Adolf Hitler and promoted with posters
showing the German leader and Nazi swastikas, has
infuriated the country's small Jewish community.
'Hitler's Cross'**, which opened last week, serves up a wide
range of continental fare and a big helping of controversy,
thanks to a name the owners say they chose to stand out
among hundreds of Mumbai eateries.
"We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay
in people's minds," owner Punit Shablok told Reuters.
**I don't think Hitler's cross. In fact I think he may be saying
to himself, " It's a gas! "
