Salt Bae to leave Nusr-Et restaurant after whirlwind London stay – as he opens NEW outpostNovember 5, 2021
SALT Bae is leaving his flagship London restaurant Nusr-Et.
The salt-sprinkling chef is jetting off to Saudi Arabia where he is set to open his newest outpost.
But the move will leave fans of the pricey grub and Insta-snapping influencers disappointed.
The butcher-turned-chef won't be around to slice steaks and show off his salt-smattering skills tableside for adoring fans like Wayne and Colleen Rooney.
Deep-pocketed foodies have previously paid £250 for prime reservations at the Knightsbridge eatery.
The menu features a £1,450 gold-gilded tomahawk steak, another £630 hunk of beef and a £100 burger – among other mega-expensive menu items.
The chef even charges £9 for a single glass of coke.
Taking to his Instagram page, Salt Bae shared the news of his impending move.
He said: "Sunday is my last day in Lovely London. I want to see you
beautiful people before I go."
His newest venture is a pop-up in Riyadh, which is his 28th Restaurant, according to the Evening Standard.
And he also appeared to recently signed a deal with Cipriani to open a new branch of the Italian eatery in Istanbul, Turkey at luxuryPark Hyatt Hotel, which the meme lord owns, according to MyLondon.
It's thought the seasoned chef has at least 13 other eateries alongside his 15 Nusr-Et Steakhouses in glitzy locations like Miami and Dubai.
But it seems he hasn't quite managed to keep up appearances at all his outposts, after one worker at Nusr-Et Steakhouse Turkey claimed he had worked there for months and never met the chef, real name Nusret Gökçe.
And Salt Bae – whose London-based antics and eyewatering bills have seen him rack up a raft of headlines – was in hot water recently after advertising for chefs.
But he planned to pay them an hourly wage equivalent to the cost of a bowl of MASH on his menu.
The measly wage was advertised despite the fact his London eatery has been ranked as the second-most expensive restaurant in the WORLD.
And despite the extortionate price tag, diners have complained the food served at the "kebab shop-style" joint is "barely edible".
