FutureStarrSalt bae restaurant los angeles
A restaurant that has been making headlines for years over a single image of its owner, celebrity chef Nusret Gökçe, is bringing a winged creature to the US. Now, Angelenos have a chance to enjoy their own Bae in the form of this soufflé dish made with crispy flaky salt, served with daikon and quail eggs.
For everyone else who hasn’t bothered to pay attention: Salt Bae originally planned to open a restaurant in the Arts District back in 2018, branching out from his international steakhouse chain Nusr-Et to open a more casual burger option that would itself be called Salt Bae. Eventually, that deal fell through here, though one did open in 2020 in New York City, City authorities temporarily shut down the Boston location for opening without a health permit, blocking two fire exits and ignoring COVID-19 protocols. Two different restaurants in the group have faced wage theft lawsuits, settling one for $230,000. This brand-new Dallas location already faces legal action over unpaid bills to contractors. Oh, and the food apparently is uneven: New York Times critic Pete Wells described “terrific” steaks but “awful” mashed potatoes and cocktails that tasted burnt, while BuzzFeed’s Scaachi Koul had a burger that “oozes greasy tears” and then had diarrhea.
The TV personality later admitted she “went a bit over the top” at Nusr-et in Knightsbridge, adding that she felt “sick” the next morning when she thought about the bill. Speaking on The Gemma Collins Podcast she said: “I have to give the ambience of the restaurant, the experience of the restaurant, a 10 out of 10. Turkish butcher and chef Gökçe is popularly known around the world as “Salt Bae,” a moniker that arose after his flamboyant seasoning technique became a viral meme in 2017. He has opened restaurants in Istanbul, Dubai, Miami, and New York. In June of 2018, Eater LA reported that Gökçe intended to open a restaurant in the Arts District section of Downtown Los Angeles, but those plans never materialized. In his typical renegade fashion, the Bae has chosen to flout all sorts of Los Angeles County public health protocols, like not wearing a mask, and engaging in a little tableside theater, which is currently verboten. But in all fairness, it is technically impossible for Mr. Bae to enter a restaurant without sprinkling salt over everything, and it should certainly be illegal to hide all that sexiness behind a mask. I mean, this is a man who was recently wanted by the Turkish police for allegedly showing his Bae-bits on Instagram “by accident,” and seriously, would the man have over 37 million followers without regularly posting thirst traps like this video of him in a hot tub, or this picture of him standing next to an exceptionally good-looking horse?
