Brilliant! Combine two concepts (sushi and naked women) that are pretty cool on their own into a mega cool idea 🙂
It’s the talk of the town. In the weeks since its introduction, the concept of nearly-naked-woman-as-plate has generated so much buzz in Chicago you’d think we live in an insular farm town in the 1940s. Or Utah.
Lost in the media buzz about the dishes has been the dish, that former belly dancer who, five nights a week, gets paid $100–plus tips–to allow parties of diners to mix fish flesh with fantasy.
She’s 24. Her name is, simply, Tabitha. And she’ll be your service tonight.
“It’s more difficult than it looks. I have to concentrate on staying still and control my breathing,” said Tabitha, echoing what some male customers will likely say.
Q What makes it difficult?
A It’s all about muscle control, so the food doesn’t fly off.
Q What do you think about while you’re lying atop a table, nearly naked, for an hour and a half ?
A I can hear the diners and I listen to the music, but I’m in my own world.
Q How have the customers treated you?
A People are afraid to go, then they take pieces from my stomach first. The breast pieces normally are the last eaten. Maybe it’s their nerves. It is borderline naughty.
Q Do you enforce any rules of etiquette?
A No tickling; don’t be too funny. I don’t want to laugh. Be good with your chopsticks–you don’t want to drop anything. No forks!
Body Sushi is available by reservation only, starting at $500 for four diners. Phone 312-335-9888, and be polite–Tabitha fields the calls.
