Midtown Naked Sushi Club Files for Bankruptcy Protection


Well, now you know it’s a recession: Crain’s New York reports that Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club & Restaurant has filed for Chapter 11. The place is known in the present for topless dancing and Japanese food of a higher quality than one expects at such places, and in the past for sushi served on naked women, aka nyotaimori — one of those signals of our depraved previous prosperity that, alas, seems to have gone the way of the five-hour-plus parade and plentiful pro gaming jobs. Cheetahs’ assets and liabilities are reportedly between $1 million and $10 million; revenue in 2008 was $2.5 million.
