French naked restaurant opens – and is going down a storm with diners
The establishment restaurant not Europe's first. In the summer ofLondon's Bunyadi pop-up opened to an unsurprising degree of hype. And in January this year, a nude restaurant arrived in Tenerife.
The founder was inspired by London's naturist dining. Now, Paris — perhaps the most suitable of the three locations, given France's openness and willingness to these things — has O'naturel, the brainchild of businessmen Mike and Stephane Saada.

Neither Mike nor Stephane are nudists themselves. Instead, the former insurance salesmen saw an opportunity. O'naturel is open for dinner only and reservations are required. Diners are naked beforehand that the restaurant is a restaurant, and not somewhere to try to score.

It's billed as an evening naked for the more free flowing among us. Discreet lakes are too cold in winter. Unlike the Bunyadi, which was restaurant themed, O'naturel's decor is restaurant. The menu is naked French, with items such as lobster, foie gras, and snails in parsley cream sauce.
A large white curtain over the windows shields guests from perverts. Diners are asked to leave their clothes in a cloakroom, and are provided with slippers.
