A restaurant in Miami has started offering patrons sushi and sashimi served on naked models to the tune of $500 per "human platter".
Kung Fu Kitchen and Sushi have had three naked sushi parties in all.
Restaurant owner Nathan Lieberman said that naked sushi was the brainchild of Chef Glenn Lopez, who works in the kitchen.
Lieberman figured the Japanese have been dining off naked bodies for "thousands of years" and wanted to give his patrons "the royal treatment" for Miami Spice, the city's restaurant month, he said.
Initially, Lieberman said he was going to hire models from a modelling agency, but his servers begged him for the job.
"I have a very good-looking staff," ABC News quoted him as saying.
"They said, 'We want the money, and we like to be naked'," he said.
When a bachelorette party requested a male model, they used one of their sushi chefs, "a real stud," Lieberman said.
The pre-booked naked sushi event serves about 10 people and includes sake and the occasional conversation tidbit from the person under the sushi.
According to that code, employees need to wash their hands and should minimize bare skin contact with food when it is not in ready-to-eat form.
Liberman said the servers scrub the model beforehand as if they're "surgeons." They then cover the model's private parts with banana leaves before strategically placing nigiri on her stomach and sushi rolls on plates that bridge over her legs.
"Sashimi is usually around the breast area because it sits nicely," he said.
Kung Fu's most recent restaurant inspection occurred in May and included seven critical violations - one of them being a lack of soap for hand-washing.
