Hitlers CrossBowing to protests from India’s tiny Jewish community, diplomats from Israel and Germany, and outraged people of good taste around the world, the owner’s Mumbai’s Hitler’s Cross Restaurant have agreed to rename their restaurant.

“We acknowledge that the name adopted by us for our restaurant was most inappropriate,” Satish Sabhlok, one of the owners of the multi-cuisine restaurant, said in a statement… Our intention was not to glorify Hitler or his atrocities or ideology in any way and we regret the anguish caused by the use of this name.”

While the owners have yet to decide on a new name for their eatery, allow us to suggest that they not use the following:

Stalin’s Star
Pol Pot’s House of Cambodian Eats
Idi Amin’s Fine African Cuisine
Son of Sam’s Steaks
Milosevic’s Place
Janjaweed Treats

Just sayin…

  • How about the “Lufftewaffle House?” Or Eva Braun’s Kitchen? What’s with these people? And besides, Hitler was a vegetarian!

  • I’m so glad that they finally decided to change the name- there are better ways to get a big opening that drawing on one of the greatest tragedies of the modern era. That said, I did love “The Producers”- it’s delightful that Mel Brooks decided to make a buffoon of Hitler, as buffoons can never be heroes.

  • I’m not a Jew but I was LIVID when I read about this restaurant. I’m glad he’s changing the name but that was just unbelievable crass and cold-hearted . . . evil business man.

  • Some of the commenters at my blog had funny suggestions a few days ago:

    papijoe:
    Killing Fields Grill?
    Stalin’s Samovar?

    Thousand Sons:
    A Pol in every Pot!

    zorkmidden:
    Franco’s Frankfurters?

    Thousand Sons:
    Mussolini’s Weenies!

    zorkmidden:
    Castro’s Carnitas?

  • Hre are a few more….
    –Hitler’s Ball
    –The Kaiser Roll
    –Adolf’s (Home of the Nuremberger!)
    Ok, I’ll stop now. Thanks for indulging me.
    Happy Monday.

  • I first read about the story at Jewish Connection-
    JewishConnection.com .

    I just can understand why the owners would name their restaurant after such a person!

    With a sign like that on the front of the restaurant, they knew exactly what they were doing!
