The co-partner of the global Nusr-et chain of grill houses, Nusret Gökçe (aka ‘salt bae’), who recently became a social media phenomenon for his meat-cutting and salt-drizzling skills, has vowed to become the “world’s greatest butcher" and is branching out with outposts in New York and now London. Currently there are six Nusr-Et restaurants in Turkey and one in Dubai (in the Four Seasons hotel), the group is backed by Dogus Group, the Istanbul-based conglomerate - part owners of Zuma and Roka restaurants.
An acclaimed steakhouse restaurant from Turkey, Nusr-et is the creation of famously charismatic Nusret Gökçe, a butcher and meat specialist. Meat is the main focus of the menu, with every piece of beef and lamb passing Nusret’s personal inspection before making it to the grill (all sourced locally) - and special names that were created by Nusret Gökçe himself - such as "Lokum" (Turkish delight) or "Kafes" (cage) for the seared beef and ribs. Signature dishes include asado ribs, beef spaghetti and grilled meatballs.
