Listen Now: Naked Dining
It’s called “Naturel” and is a nudist eatery where no shirt, no shoes and yes even no pants will guarantee you get service. Here’s how it works. Customers enter the restaurant and find themselves in a cloak room where they shed and safely store all their clothes. Once fully in the buff, you will be escorted to your table.
To help maintain privacy from anyone outside hoping for a peek all of the windows are covered with a white curtain. However once inside all bets are off and you can see all the fellow customers as no private dining tables are offered. The only people wearing more than a napkin across their lap will be the wait staff, who remain clothed for hygienic reasons.
The food is standard French cuisine with menu items that include foie gras and fish there is only room inside for 40 customers at a time. And if you spill, at least you don’t have to worry about stains.
