NUDE EATERY CLOSES AFTER FAIL­ING TO PUT BUTTS IN SEATS

Winnipeg Sun - - NEWS -

Paris’ first nude restau­rant will be shut­ting its doors after fail­ing to at­tract cloth­ing-op­tional cus­tomers.

Ac­cord­ing to The Lo­cal, O’na­turel opened in Novem­ber 2017 as a way to cater to the ris­ing pop­u­lar­ity of nud­ism in France.

While the con­cept of a cloth­ing-op­tional restau­rant seemed cheeky to some, it failed to gar­ner a reg­u­lar stream of cus­tomers, forc­ing the es­tab­lish­ment to re­veal it will close in Fe­bru­ary.

“It is with great re­gret that we an­nounce the de­fin­i­tive clos­ing of the O’na­turel restau­rant on Satur­day, Feb. 16, 2019,” own­ers Mike and Stephane Saada said in a state­ment to The Lo­cal. “Thank you for hav­ing par­tic­i­pated in this ad­ven­ture by com­ing to dine at O’na­turel. We will only re­mem­ber the good times, meet­ing beau­ti­ful peo­ple and cus­tomers who were de­lighted to share ex­cep­tional mo­ments.”

O’na­turel fea­tured a min­i­mal­ist set­ting with a menu fea­tur­ing French bistro cui­sine. There is a strict list of rules for din­ers — such as a no-tol­er­ance pol­icy to voyeurism or ex­hi­bi­tion­ism, and cell­phones and cam­eras must be left in a cloak­room.
