This Russian Restaurant is Staffed Exclusively by Twins

You know what they say. "Two heads are better than one." Does this adage also apply to seating customers and waiting tables? I guess we'll find out as there is now a diner that only employs twins. Also, by twins we mean identical only. All of you Schwarzenegger/Devito types will have to look somewhere else.

Moscow's Twin Stars Diner is the aforementioned eatery and the whole idea was spawned by a chance viewing of a twin-heavy Soviet film called "Kingdom of Crooked Mirrors." This conceit is applied to servers, hosts and bartenders. As you can imagine, it's not the easiest restaurant in the world to staff.

Twin Stars is not the first restaurant to employ this concept. New York City's aptly named Twins did the same thing in the halcyon days of the 1990s.
