A pop-up restaurant where diners eat "food in the nude" looks set to soon hit Paris.


The Bunyadi restaurant has proved a hit in London, and now rumour has it that the restaurant is sizing up Paris next.
"That's the plan, though we have no confirmation and no opening dates yet," the restaurant's event assistant told The Local.
She added that the team was thinking of a September launch. 
"And it's going to be the same in Paris as it has been London. Back to the start, no mobile phones, all natural, candles, and raw, organic food," she added.  
The concept has proved popular in the UK since it opened last month, with the official website announcing that 46,000 people applied to dine there.
The reviews have been impressive too, at least according to the site's official Facebook page. Users praise everything from the "liberating experience" to the "out of this world cocktails".

The London version of the restaurant is scheduled to close its doors in mid August, and the team is hoping that the French appetite proves to be just as strong. 
"We think the French would pretty much love this, there are a lot of naturists there," the restaurant's spokesperson said. 
"And not to mention the food scene, Paris is the place to be for restaurants."
Indeed, the French are no strangers to nudity. For a start they have a tendency to get naked when protesting, as these images show.
In April, French tourist officials went as far as urging Brits to come to experience the nudist sides of France for a holiday. 
"People are seeing a new side of France - everyone knows about the wine, the gastronomy, the winter skiing, the city breaks, but this is a bit more unusual," the campaign's spokesperson told The Local at the time.
"It's not often you hear a friend say 'I'm going to a nudist beach for my next holiday'. The whole idea is still a bit peculiar."
