Libation with a side of liberation.
What’s your favorite cuisine? Do you prefer to go out to eat or stay home? And lastly, do you eat naked or fully clothed? No matter what your style, London’s newest restaurant is sure to be a new experience for many.
In an age where all food is going natural–non-GMO, no preservatives, vegan, no sugar added–doesn’t it make sense for the dinner guests to go au naturel as well?
The Bunyadi, a pop-up restaurant scheduled to open in June, is pitching itself as London’s naked restaurant, with a press release stating, “We believe people should get the chance to enjoy and experience a night out without any impurities… and even no clothes if they wish to.”
So just what does naked dining entail?
Be careful where you drop your fork…
The Bunyadi promises to take patrons back in time.
“Enter a secret Pangea-like world, free from phones, electric lights and even clothing (optional) and revisit the beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life,” it says on the website.
Even the restaurant’s name invokes purity.
Serving “wood-flame grilled meals served on handmade clay crockery and edible cutlery, in a space void of the industrialized-world’s modern trappings,” the name Bunyadi comes from the Hindi for ‘base’ or ‘natural.’
“We have worked very hard to design a space where everything patrons interact with is bare and naked. The use of natural bamboo partitions and candlelight has enabled us to make the restaurant discreet, whilst adhering to the ethos behind it.
“No doubt, this has been the most challenging project for us yet, which makes us very excited about it,” said restaurant founder Seb Lyall.
