Turkish celebrity chef Nusret Gökçe
Turkish celebrity chef Nusret Gökçe, who goes by the moniker Salt Bae on social media, has revealed that he will be leaving London to open a new restaurant in Saudi Arabia.
The chef launched his Nusr-Et Steakhouse in London’s Knightsbridge last month, with the restaurant quickly becoming infamous on social media for a menu containing items such as a $1,147 steak covered in gold.
Now, he has revealed to hungry fans that he is heading to Riyadh to open his 28th restaurant, although he did not share further details.
His Nusr-Et Steakhouse chain boasts locations at Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi and in the Four Seasons Resort in Dubai. He also has restaurants in Los Angeles, New York and Istanbul.
Taking to Instagram Stories early this week to share a picture of himself holding a gold-covered Tomahawk steak, he said: “Sunday is my last day in London. I will go to Riyadh to open my 28th restaurant.”
