*If you want to reserve a spot at Bunyadi, London’s first nude restaurant, there’s a waiting list. A long one. Like 16,000 names long. That’s a whole lot of nekked (sic) people waiting to eat. Hmm…Wonder what it smells like in the kitchen. Maybe we can ask Seb Lyall, the restauranteur who has gained notoreity for his past innovative concepts in eateries. But be warned, his views may be a bit skewed seeing as he eats his meals bottomless.

As in without wearing anything from the waist down.

Now he has opened Bunyadi, a “clothing optional” restaurant in London with a June targeted opening date.

“It’s liberating,” he told The Washington Post about the freedom one feels without the henderance of material on the body. “It’s fun and sometimes the neighbors watch — fine, whatever.

Spoken like a true fan of voyeurism, Mr. Lyall.

“It’s my home and my space, and that’s kind of the space we’re trying to create in the restaurant — our own little space. It will be fascinating what the response is.”

Aside from the 16,000 on the waiting list? I’d say that speaks loud and clear, sir.

But Lyall expects those numbers to soar even higher.
