Have you ever wanted to dine nude in public? Thanks to a new restaurant opening in London, you can. The latest food trend is taking all-natural food to an entirely different level. Maybe that is because you can dine au natural.
You can dine at London’s very first naked restaurant and everything is natural. The unique eatery promises a one-of-a-kind experience that is “free from the trappings of modern life.” You know, clothes, cell phones, electricity. Oh and all of the food is cooked with fire and you will dine in candlelight. But, it doesn’t stop there. The furniture is hand-carved, the food is served on homemade clay plates and the cutlery is edible.
What about the food. Diners will feast on vegan and non-vegan choices along with organic wine. The restaurant owners promise a pure experience.
We believe people should get the chance to enjoy and experience a night out without any impurities: no chemicals, no artificial colors, no electricity, no gas, no phone and even no clothes if they wish to. The idea is to experience true liberation,” said founder Seb Lyall, in a press release on the restaurant’s website.
A bit shy? No worries, there will be clothing section for those that want to keep their unmentionables unmentioned. The people cooking the food will also be wearing clothes for obvious health reasons. The owners say everything will be very hygienic.
“There really aren’t any extra health and safety issues to worry about by having a naked restaurant,” Lyall told The Guardian, “although we got a lot of guests asking: ‘Is it going to be hygienic for me to sit naked on a seat that someone else has been nude on?’ We’ve had to point out that you will be sitting on a gown, which is effectively a cushion.”
Lyall believes this will be a very successful venture and he has the numbers to prove it. At last check, more than 45,000 people were on the wait list to dine at the naked restaurant. Opening on June 11, the restaurant is only open for three months and seats 42 guests, which means that only 6,000 people can go—and the wait list is at about 45,000 as of right now.
“People eat naked anyway. A lot of people eat naked sitting at home,” he said. “The only new thing is convincing them to do it in public.”
