New Lucky Restaurant: Dining with the dead

Some restaurant atmospheres can really be dead, but one Indian owner claims business has flourished since opening his eatery at the site of an old cemetery.

Rather than ripping out the graves to make way for his restaurant, owner Krishnan Kutti chose to preserve the coffins and place tables around them at the ironically-named New Lucky Restaurant in Ahmedabad.

The coffins are the remnants of a Muslim cemetery and the cafe has become a popular hang-out for young and old.

Approximately a dozen graves lie inside the restaurant and have been sealed off by iron grilles. Every morning, when the shutters of the restaurant are pulled up, waiters spend some time wiping the gravestones and decorating them with fresh flowers.
