Salt Bae’s New Restaurant is Getting Trashed

It looks like Nusret GΓΆkΓ§e’s latest restaurant endeavor could use a bit more seasoning. Though Salt Bae, the Turkish-born chef known by most for his viral videos and his moniker than his menus, owns and operates nine other locations of his restaurant Nusr-Et, it was the opening of his midtown Manhattan fixture that did him in.

The reviews are in, and they’re not great. According to TIME, food critics from across the city have largely panned the restaurant, calling the food bland, boring, and way too expensive.

Eater called the steaks rubbery, and food critic Robert Sietsema revealed he was still left hungry even after dropping over $300 for two people. Steve Cuozzo of the New York Post didn’t hold back, calling the whole restaurant “a rip-off” and described one of the steaks he ordered as “shoe-leather-tough bone-in ribeye, which, for extra fun, was loaded with gruesome globs of fat.” Ouch.

  1. I looked up this guy's history. He is not a chef or nor is he a cook. He was just a butcher's apprentice. I highly doubt he can cook a steak properly. Only the rich and stupid people pay that much for steak boiled in butter.

  2. He’s a clown. He wears pedo glasses and he seems a little πŸ’β€β™‚οΈ His body language exposes a lot. It’s all flair and anyone who can watch the way he salts meat and like it is ridiculous
