(PR) Mr. Lordi, frontman for Finnish monster hard rock act LORDI, has been keeping busy in 2007 with both the upcoming release of 'The Arockalypse' in North America on March 20th, 2007 (on THE END RECORDS) and the new LORDI-themed restaurant, 'Lordi's Rocktaurant', that opened December 15th, 2006 in Rovaniemi, Finland. "Everything on the menu that is related to Lordi is our own ideas. Like everything with this band, we always have our hands on all projects," states Mr. Lordi. "I opened the restaurant with my childhood friend (Arto Koivuharju). My friend used to run a restaurant and he wanted to open another restaurant. He asked me about an idea and I suggested the Lordi-themed restaurant. Everything we start working on seems to get bigger and bigger. We wanted to open in restaurant earlier in the summer but the whole concept just grew and we finally opened it last month. It is a unique place, especially from a European point of view."
He adds, "I like the Ox item - the rare beef with chocolate chili sauce and sesame seeds over bull steak. People can order it medium, but I like my steaks rare." With the Lord-themed entrees and memorabilia lining the restaurant's walls it appears the restaurant is doing pretty good business having only been open a month. - Click here for the Full Story
