Cafe No No

10:00 AM -- Reuters reports on a restaurant in India so grotesquely awful it beggars belief:

    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' opened last week, and 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.

No shit. More on this Nazi Applebee's:

    A huge portrait of a stern-looking Fuehrer greets visitors at the door. The cross in the restaurant's name refers to the swastika that symbolised the Nazi regime.

    "This place is not about wars or crimes, but where people come to relax and enjoy a meal," said restaurant manager Fatima Kabani, adding that they were planning to turn the eatery's name into a brand with more branches in Mumbai.

And Poland?
