Nyataimori style sushi?
I am looking for Nyataimori style sushi in the San Francisco bay area. I will be visiting in the near future and I would love to find a place that serves it.
Nyataimori style sushi is pretty popular in London from what I understand, some parts of Germany, Seattle has a place from what I hear.
I however haven't been able to find any places in San Francisco that say they have this.
For those that don't know what nyataimori is, a breif definition follows:
A way of serving sushi where the table is performence art in the form of a naked body.
Most of the time the body is that of a naked woman and it's very pricey in certain areas of the world.
If anyone has any pointers, I would be very thankful.
Odd coincidence, but today's Seattle PI has an article on such a place in Seattle.
Google News Alert sniffed it out for me because of a reference to a Merry Melodies cartoon called "Chowhound" In the opening paragraph!
Chowhound, Looney Tunes and Naked Sushi, hmm....
Actually this is pretty ironic given the discussion earlier on the general board (or maybe the international one) about the bias in Japan against women as sushi chefs. Who supposedly could not handle sushi because their hands were warmer than mens' and so they would cause the sushi to spoil. Wouldn't women's (supposedly) warmer bodies cause the same problem? So much for that argument versus plain, outrageous sexism.
This really has nothing to do about sushi. Even in Japan, the practice is so incredibly rare that it's essentially an urban myth, and really irrelevant as a "chowhound" or even a "food" issue.
Think of rich, bored people on the edge of the sex trade. Those very few people who engage in this are certainly not doing it for the food.
