Generally speaking, we pretty much all dine in the same manner. The customers and meals may be different, and clothing is usually required, especially at a restaurant.
But what if a dining spot omitted their “no shirt” policy and allowed customers to eat in the nude?
One new restaurant in Paris dubbed O’Naturel, allows daring diners to feast in their birthday suits. Located at the 12th arrondissement on Rue de Granvelle, customers will be asked to undress in the cloakroom. All wardrobes must be left behind before you are seated. In the dining area, there are no windows and a lot of blackout curtains. So, you won’t have to be worried about random people peeping into windows to see you in the buff.
Forty people can dine at one time in collective nude harmony. Not to mention, the wait staff is also naked. If you are uncomfortable being naked or seeing others in the nude, this is not the place for you!
The restaurant, which just recently opened, topped off their first night by allowing the Paris Naturist Association to book the place. Mike and Stephane Saada, two twin brothers who are the restaurant’s owners told the newspaper, Le Parisien that “They’ve supported us from the beginning, and we reserved our first soiree for them.”
If you’re wondering what the neighbors are thinking about the new addition, they seem ok with it. The newspaper caught up with a local man who noted, “It doesn’t bother me at all or my neighbors. We don’t see anything from the street. We know what’s happening. It’s not a massage parlor.”
This may be an emerging trend in dining, but our one curiosity is how they maintain the chairs! The busboy must have his work cut out for him.
