But Salt Bae’s newly opened New York City Nusr-et Steakhouse has failed to impress some critics and diners, who have blasted the restaurant’s ‘obscene’ prices and underwhelming food.
Nusret Gokce, 35, the man behind the incredibly popular meme, opened the New York branch on January 18, charging between $70 and $275 for a steak.
Nusret Gokce, aka Salt Bae, became famous last year for a video in which he sprinkled salt onto meat in a very flamboyant way (left). He has used his newfound fame to open a New York City branch of his successful steakhouse chain (right)
But though some are just happy to see the man perform his signature salt-sprinkling move as he serves diners himself, others have said the Manhattan 150-seater restaurant is a ‘rip-off’.
Publicist Ronn Torossian urged people to ‘avoid’ the 13th branch of Gokce’s successful steakhouse chain, posting a picture of his heart-stopping $1413 bill for four on Facebook.
The bill revealed that four steaks had cost the group $805, while three leafy salads cost $75.
Even the drinks were expensive, with four Diet Cokes setting the table back $28.
PR guru Ronn Torossian said he was hit with a $1413 bill when he visited Salt Bae’s NYC restaurant
HAHAHA Salt Bae is such a tool. I don’t care how good and fast you can cut meat, and sprinkle salt on a steak, when your food fucking sucks. I think the guy who wrote this review was soft when explaining his awful time at Nusr-Et Steakhouse. But that’s because he doesn’t the freedom we do over here at Just Grubbin. Another reviewer paid 500 bucks for his dinner and left feeling hungry.
FUCK THAT. 275 bucks for a tomahawk ribeye steak. If your from south jersey you know of a place called the Library, which serves, possibly in my opinion. one of the best tomahawk ribeye steaks, for 300% of the cost as Salt Bae’s bullshit steak house. Other quality steak houses around the south jersey Philadelphia region, is Marmont Steak House in Philadelphia, Pietro Prime in West Chester,PA and Brandywine Prime in Chadds Ford, PA. I promise you, you will not leave hungry after this meal, and your wallet will still be pretty full afterwards as well.
