The Nude Restaurant () - IMDb
The original concept was to edit both versions into a final one. One version contained footage of an all nude all male cast and was never released publicly as an independent film. The other version, with both actors and actresses wearing G-strings, was shown at the Hudson Theater on West Forty-fourth Street as one of Warhol's series of sexploitation films or "nudies" as Warhol liked to call them. The all male nude version is often referred to as Restaurant but should not be confused with the film of the same name from that starred Edie Sedgwick. A restaurant is found and rented. A large group of men, and one woman, are decked out in little black cache-sexes, because that is thought to be a terribly cute to the new pornography.
Different versions of the film exist, with one being an all-male, all-nude cast, and the other with all actors in G-strings. Some of the "nude" patrons leave the establishment, their places taken by new customers, also nearly in the buff. There are numerous in-camera jump cuts known as 'strobe cuts' and the camera weaves around a bit. The waiter and waitress move from table to table, talking to the customers. Taylor Mead sits smirking at the fountain, where eventually he partakes in a long conversation with Viva about her Catholic childhood.
