Dining, Au Naturel

Coming to London this summer for just three months – a pop-up restaurant where diners have the option to eat in the nude. And so far, over 15,000 people have signed up for tickets!

The restaurant, the Bunyadi, will have both clothed and unclothed sections, and diners will have access to gowns, changing rooms, and lockers.

The restaurant will offer both vegan and non-vegan entrees made with all-natural ingredients, and served on handmade clay plates with edible cutlery.

The founder states that, “People should get a chance to experience a night out without any impurities: no chemicals, no artificial colors, no electricity, no gas, no phone, and even no clothes if they wish.”

I wonder if there will also be rules against makeup, deodorant, perfume, and plastic surgery.

If I had to choose between eating at a place like this or one where there are lots of chemicals, artificial colors, electricity, gas, phones, and people wearing clothes, I’ll choose the chemicals every time.

I’ve often reminisced about what it was like to go out to dinner when I was a kid; it was a big deal, and we usually got a little dressed up for the occasion.

Now when I go to a restaurant it seems like everyone must must be taking a break from doing their laundry, and as a result were stuck wearing clothes that probably shouldn’t be worn in public.

I guess there are two ways to deal with such a problem; one is to require some minimum dress code – no jeans, collared shirts, no cutoffs, etc., or, go the Bunyadi route, and skip the clothes entirely.

I think I have a new appreciation for those people who at least have the dignity to wear a shirt when they go out, even if there’s an obscenity on the front of it.

But just in case this au naturel dining becomes a trend, I’m going to start doing a few extra minutes on the treadmill…
