In Paris, here comes the first nude restaurant in France. The most suitable place in the country, given France’s openness and willingness to these things – has O’naturel, the brainchild of businessmen Mike and Stephane Saada.
Mike nor Stephane are neither nudists themselves. Instead, the former insurance salesmen saw an opportunity. O’naturel is open for dinner only and reservations are required. Diners are asked to leave their clothes in a cloakroom and are provided with slippers.
The establishment is not Europe’s first. In the summer of 2016, London’s Bunyadi pop-up opened to an unsurprising degree of hype. Reviews were mixed. Unlike the Bunyadi, which was heavily themed, O’naturel’s decor is minimalist. The menu is classically French, with items such as lobster, foie gras, and snails in parsley cream sauce.
A three-course menu costs $57.50. A large white curtain over the windows shields guests from perverts and other onlookers.
