Nibble in the Nude: A Naked Restaurant is Coming to London
You’ve heard of farm-to-table: well, now there’s nude-at-table. A new pop-up restaurant in London called The Bunyadi is coming this summer. To dine there, not only do you not have to wear a jacket, clothing is optional entirely.
Named after the Hindi word for “natural” or “base,” the premise of the unique eatery is to return to our organic basics, which apparently includes zero attire. “Enter a secret Pangea-like world," it says on the website. “Free from phones, electric lights and even clothing (optional) and revisit the beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life.”
Like a smoking and non-smoking section, the restaurant will have a naked and non-naked section, and a changing room for those who want to strip down while they chow down.
"The idea is to experience true liberation," founder Seb Lyall told the IBTimes. "We have worked very hard to design a space where everything patrons interact with is bare and naked. The use of natural bamboo partitions and candlelight has enabled us to make the restaurant discreet, whilst adhering to the ethos behind it.”
While the menu is still a mystery, the waitlist already has more than 4,500 people signed up.
