Broadway Strip: Ladies and gents, we may have a new record for the quickest shuttering. Almost exactly two months after opening, the Usual Suspects Cafe has removed any doubt that the market for Russian vegan comedy clubs is indeed a tough one. We're still awaiting the details, but the place is "closed for renovation." Don't forget that the restaurant got rave reviews from the vegan set upon opening; unfortunately, once the chefs left the Russian waiters to do the only cooking they knew, the restaurant's fall from grace was even faster than anticipated. The good news, though, is that at least they won't have to put the Grand Opening banner back up when/if they reopen.
