"Polonium" Restaurant Capitalizes on Ex-KGB Spy Case

The owners of a restaurant in northern England are having their hands full these days, unexpectedly capitalizing on the death of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.

The reason for the rising popularity of the establishment in Sheffield is in its name - "The Polonium Restaurant".

Ever since word broke that the former Russian spy was poisoned with radioactive polonium-210, the place has been fully packed.

The Polish owner say the place was not named after the radioactive stuff, but a Polish folk band he played in some 30 years ago.

The notorious name, however, is paying off for the restaurant with business up as much as 30 %.
