A Nude Restaurant Opened In Paris—And The Photos Are Wild

"It's a little surreal."

Always wanted to dine on haute cuisine in the nude? A new restaurant in Paris has got you covered—er, uncovered.

O’Naturel, billed as the city’s first nudist restaurant, opened in October. It’s the brainchild of twin brothers Mike and Stephane Saada, former insurance salesmen who saw a market for an unusual dining experience in the famed city’s saturated restaurant scene.

Diners remove their clothes and shoes in changing rooms, though women, who comprise 40% of the clientele, are welcome to keep their high heels on.

Staffers also collect cell phones and cameras to protect diners from unsolicited photo-ops.

As for the menu, O’Naturel offers classic French fare, including escargot and foie gras, with entrees running €32 (or about $40). Guests so far have included Yves Leclerc, the president of France’s Naturist Federation.

“We’re in the heart of Paris and we’re eating naked,” he told AFP. “It’s a little surreal.”
