It was in the air, and the first restaurant in London of Salt Bae was created, the legendary Turkish entrepreneur and restaurateur, star of the web also with his videos that are popular on the net.It is located in Knightsbridge a few meters from Harrolds in one of the richest neighborhoods in London.There is talk of a crisis in London, but for the rich the crisis is not felt, on the contrary, the reservations for Bae’s restaurant have already all been snapped up, and at stratospheric prices, just think that a high quality steak covered with gold foil, can even cost from 700 to 850 pounds (pounds) just the steak.

Salt Bae. Who is? Maybe the name doesn’t tell you much but if we tell you something about him you will surely understand.

Salt Bae is the nickname of a 37-year-old man named Nusret Gökçe. He is Kurdish, born in Erzurum in Turkey.

As often happens to those who make success in life, Nusret does not come from a wealthy family, quite the contrary. His father was a miner and had a lot of difficulty in keeping him going in his studies. He left school in the sixth grade, rolled up his sleeves and found a job as an apprentice butcher in Istanbul in the Kadıköy district

Between 2007 and 2010 he traveled between Argentina and the United States and worked for free in restaurants because he wanted to gain experience as a chef and restaurateur.

In 2010 he returned to Turkey and opened his first restaurant in Istanbul. Today he is the owner of the Nusr-Et steak house chain which is present in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha, Qatar, Ankara, Bodrum, Marmaris, Jeddah, Mykonos, Miami, New York.

Why is Salt Bae so famous? Surely because he is someone who knows his job. His fame was virally amplified by the publication in January 2017 of the video “Ottoman Steak” on the Twitter account of his restaurant.

Salt Bae in Milan? Will arrive?

The video counts 10 million views on Instagram and shows Salt Bae as she masterfully cuts the meat and gives it taste by dropping the salt from the tips of her fingers onto her forearm. This is where his nickname comes from. Look at it, you will be enchanted.

Lately it is rumored that Salt Bae wants to open a restaurant here in Milan. It seems that the area could be that of Porta Nuova. In a clip of his Stories during a meeting, a female voice is heard saying “Nusret knows and loves Milan, a city where he would also like to live one day”.

Of course, we fully understand his desire. Will we soon be able to see him at work and taste his menus? Maybe!
