A new London-based pop-up restaurant is scheduled to open in June for three months and will be the city’s first-ever clothing-optional dining experience. “Free from phones, electric lights and even clothing,” the website states. “Revisit the beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life.”
The Bunyadi is named after a Hindi term meaning fundamental, base or natural. Founder of the restaurant, Sebastian Lyall said in an interview that it has been designed to allow diners to experience true liberation. “We are creating an atmosphere inside the restaurant, where if you feel comfortable, you can take your gown off,” said Lyall.
Menu items will be served “naked” also, featuring homegrown, and free from preservatives, added colours, and chemicals. Edible cutlery will be used to stay true to its “au natural” way, and any appliances that require electricity or gas will also be absent.
