The Vegas outpost will be Nusret Gökçe’s fifth restaurant location in the U.S.
Turkish butcher and Instagram sensation, ‘Salt Bae,’ has long been dropping hints about bringing his viral salting and slicing skills to Vegas, and it looks like plans are at last being finalized to make it happen!
The famous chef, who opened his first restaurant over a decade ago in Turkey, quickly gained momentum in the restaurant industry after going viral on social media for bouncing salt off his elbow and his unique style of slicing meat. Gökçe currently owns sixteen restaurants worldwide, with another two coming soon to Dallas and London.
Now, Gökçe turns his attention to the Vegas Strip, where he is set to open a $4.5 million luxury steakhouse in a vacant space next to Sake Rok at The Park. According to Eater Las Vegas, initial paperwork was filed in December for a two-story restaurant, set to have two kitchens, two dining rooms, as well as a patio and balcony for extra seating with a view.
A large assortment of meat options will dominate the menu, with different cuts of beef and lamb, meatballs and Turkish sausage. Salads, sides, and lots of delicious desserts will also be on the menu. Check out the full menu here.
No official dates have been released, but one thing is clear – Nusr-Et Steakhouse is sure to add some unique flair to the Las Vegas Strip once it does open. And of course, fans can expect plenty of Insta-opportunities, especially if you’re lucky enough to have ‘Salt Bae’ do the honors himself!
