Malkin's eatery

Courtesy of The Pensblog, here's a translated review from a couple years back of Evgeni Malkin's prison-themed restaurant, VIP Zone.

Here's Russian Prospects' description:
Barred windows and ceiling, lamps designed as police flashlights, barbed wire and excerpts from the Russian Penal Code are significant parts of the interior design at VIP Zone, Magnitogorsk. You can have a seat on a plank-bed (there are comfortable chairs for the more delicate) and eat your food with an aluminum fork. When you have finished, waitresses dressed in striped prison wrappers will bring you a bill dotted with fingerprints.

"I wanted to open a restaurant that would be something absolutely new, like nothing before it," Malkin told Komsomolskaya Pravda daily.

can you leave a "Frank Morris" mask portrayed in Escape From Alcatraz with Clint Eastwood when you want to ditch on your bill?

Will Mike Danton be dining there when he resumes his post-prison hockey career in the KHL?
