Instagram sensation, Nusret Gokce (aka Salt Bae), will finally be able to open his London restaurant later this month.
Steak lovers rejoice!
After major set backs caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the salt lover himself will soon be welcoming celebrity A-listers (expect to see the likes of Paul Pogba, Leonardo Di Caprio, and David Beckham amongst others) to the new high-end eatery at The Park Tower Knightsbridge hotel.
According to Adam Hyman, resident restaurant expert, the location chosen for the opening of his first UK restaurant will be a sure money-making spot for the Turkish restaurateur, saying:
Knightsbridge is the perfect postcode for the restaurant, whether it's for those who want to tick the restaurant off their restaurant bucket list or the locals and tourists of SW1 who want to eat somewhere other than Zuma.
People are itching to get out, socialise, have fun and spend money. As a city, we have been starved of restaurants for practically an entire year, so new openings will be received with even more anticipation than pre-Covid times.
The luxury steakhouse chain called Nusr-Et will be opening its doors officially on 17 May—conveniently timed to coincide with the official date the UK will be heading into the third phase of the roadmap out of lockdown.
What can you expect from the menu?
Visiting his restaurant is said to be an experience your tastebuds will not forget but it also comes with an incredibly hefty price tag. Tomahawk steaks will set you back £200, a spinach salad costs £15 and soft drinks start at £7.
But perhaps the most buzzed about menu item is the 24-carat gold steak—or Golden Tomahawk—that costs £720. Private chef and food blogger Vanessa Cole talked about how her experience at the Dubai location was worth every last penny:
Salt Bae's steaks are tender and melt like butter in your mouth. I told the waiter that we had come specifically for Salt Bae to cut our steak, so they brought me a menu that included only the premium or gold-wrapped steaks. I figured Salt Bae only comes out for the most premium dishes.
