People Can't Wait to Eat at London's Nude Restaurant

While its menu hasn't been unveiled, there's one thing hot new London restaurant The Bunyadi will have plenty of: buns. That's because, as NPR reports, the pop-up restaurant scheduled to open in June will be clothing optional. "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," NPR quotes a press release as saying. The restaurant, which as of Thursday had more than 14,000 people on its wait list, will be split into "pure" and "clothed" sections with changing rooms and lockers for diners wishing to disrobe. Servers will also be nude with "only some covering," TimeOut reports.

The team behind the The Bunyadi wants the restaurant to be "void of the industrialized-world's modern trappings." That means it will use all-natural ingredients and cooking methods, Business Insider reports. The restaurant will have no electricity, phone, or gas. Meats will be grilled over flames, the plates will be handmade out of clay, and the cutlery will be edible. "We have worked very hard to design a space where everything patrons interact with is bare and naked," NPR quotes the press release as saying. "The idea is to experience true liberation," the restaurant's founder says, per Business Insider. The Bunyadi will be open for three months only. (More nudity stories.)
