  • Exclusive: this is what it's like to eat at the naked restaurant

    Next week, London's first 'naked restaurant' opens. As you may remember, the idea behind The Bunyadi is a kinda back-to-nature vibe, where staff and customers are unclothed, phones are banned and there's no electricity – with food being cooked over a fire and light coming from candles. A full week ahead of the public launch, we stripped off and went to eat dinner with unclothed guests.

    At those prices (£55-£65 -- that's around $75-100) for a meal -- it had better be good. For those prices you could host a pretty good dinner party in your own abode,

    Obviously - you won't see any other naked people except for those in your own party.

    I do like the idea = leave your cell phones outside.

      There is a clothing optional bar/restaurant in Key West, Florida. Been there.. nothing to write home about. Nudity is more of a novelty than anything else. A few women were topless, none nude during our visit. Very busy during Fantasy Fest for those already half naked from the festival and intoxicated. I presume the London restaurant is little more classy and more suited to real nudists.

        I just read about one of these restaurants coming (just opened?) to Tokyo. Rumor has it they subject the diners to physical exams to ensure all patrons meet suggested "normal" BMI.

          Really nature boy? Gee then it certainly is not run in the true spirit of nudism where as you and I know 'all bodies are 'normal'.

            At those prices, they're trying to attract a high-brow crowd. My best guess is that they are going for that upscale crowd and presenting it as a novelty.

            You use the term "real nudists" -- who often are members of social circles, or nudist clubs. You will note that some years ago I got into a nude dining thread, where a gentleman in Texas asked about nude dining options. The thread got a little contentious, and I began listing MY nude dining experiences and asked my challenger (NOT the original poster) to list his.

            Crickets.

            "Real nudists" - as you call them, already have their own places. In your neck of the woods - Cypress Cove has a very good restaurant that permits nude dining, but you do not check your clothes in, and you don't dine in a man-made "tent". On the other hand, it's not veggie/vegan fare they're offering.

            Those of us who have friends in nudist circles already have nude dining experiences. In large groups - and in smaller ones, too. Here in New England, we have a number of pot luck dinners at our nudist parks and clubs -- we also have nude dining experiences among ourselves. I hosted a dinner party this winter, and attended three others within my circle of nudist friends. I suspect that those who are active in social nudism in the Greater London area are already doing the same.

            So I view this as a novelty. It will be interesting to see how they fare going forward (pun intended). But for my money, mrs lurk and I will put the money up, prepare a great dinner for several of our friends, and if/when they reciprocate, it's a better nudist experience.

            Now, before someone puts words into my mouth - a "real nudist" can be someone who lives alone with a nudist lifestyle, or someone who takes nude vacations, or someone who engages in social nudism, whether on public lands *or* within the auspices of a nudist group or club or resort. It's an all-encompassing term.

              Somehow I thought of the old joke =

              (Waiter) = "Say, we don't get that many <whatever> in this restaurant!"
              (Nudist) = "And at these prices, you ain't gonna get too many more!"
