In the restaurant business it’s all about bums on seats and in the case of O’Naturel, the first nudist restaurant to open in Paris, there sadly weren’t enough naked rear-ends to keep the restaurant open.

Diners eat in the nude at the newly opened nudist restaurant "o'naturel" in Paris on December 5, 2017. Leave your coats, your pants and your inhibitions at the door: a Paris restaurant has begun serving up classic French fare to diners in the nude. Located down a quiet side street in southwest Paris, O'naturel, billed as the French capital's first nudist restaurant, is the brainchild of 42-year-old twins Mike and Stephane Saada.

According to the AFP, despite rave reviews from those brave enough to shed their clothing to indulge in O’Naturel’s gastronomic delicacies, the owners of the restaurant announced via Facebook they would be closing their doors permanently next month.

“It is now or never,” twin owners Mike and Stephane Saada urged on their Facebook page. “We are counting on you to support us. We thank everyone for taking part in this adventure. We will only remember the good moments and the great people we met.”

The restaurant will permanently shutter up on February 16, which means those looking to indulge in fine French cuisine, dressed only in their birthday suits, can still experience O’Naturel for Valentine’s Day.
