No Need To Dress For Dinner At This Parisian Restaurant For Nudists

Paris’ hottest new restaurant is attracting lots of attention from patrons who like to have a little skin in the game.

It’s called O’Naturel, and it caters to nudists who care more about fine food than fine clothing.

    The restaurant holds about 40 diners per seating, each of whom has to disrobe in what Fox News calls an “everything-check room” before sitting at their tables.

    To avoid lookie-loos, the restaurant is on a residential street away from tourist hot spots, according to LonelyPlanet.com.

    In addition, the curtains are kept closed and there’s an interior blackout curtain to ensure diners’ privacy when the door opens.

    So far, nudists are enjoying the naked dining, though Yves Leclerc, president of the French Naturist Federation, admitted that going buff in a bistro was “a little surreal,” according to TheWeek.co.uk.

    Still, Leclerc is excited to bare all in the City of Light. “It's like when we're on holiday, but it's even better,” he said.

    There are some rules: No phones or cameras in the dining area, and no exhibitionism or disrespectful sexual behavior.

    Oh, and the waiters and cooks must remained dressed at all times, according to ABC News.

    The menu features bistro classics, including foie gras, lobster, snails, lamb and scallops. A three-course dinner costs around $58.

    O’Naturel is the brainchild of twin brothers Mike and Stephane Saada, who were inspired by other naked restaurants around the world.

    Although some might think being naked at a restaurant would be titillating, Mike Saada insists to Agence France-Presse, “Nudity doesn’t have to mean sexuality.”
