Dinner at Salt Bae’s London restaurant Nusr-et came away with a mouthwatering bill of £ 37,000 after eating a golden steak
A dinner at Salt Bae’s London restaurant Nusr-et ended up with a tantalizing bill of £ 37,000 after eating a two-course meal.
A reviewer accused Turkish-born internet icon Nusret Gökçe of “taking the p ** s” after paying £ 850 for the Golden Tomahawk – a steak covered in gold leaf – at Knightsbridge restaurant.
The starving group also shelled out £ 400 for 16 Baklava, £ 14 for sautéed broccoli and £ 12 for a side of mashed potatoes.
The bill payer even paid £ 9,100 for a bottle of 1996 Petrus and £ 19,900 for two bottles of 2003 Petrus – all luxurious red wines.
In total, the receipt reached a stunning £ 37,023.10 – more than the UK average annual salary – and also included a 15% service charge.
The receipt was captured from Snapchat and shared on Reddit with the caption: “It’s just taking the p ** s.”
The group ate at the restaurant last Friday. The number of guests has not been revealed.
Gökçe’s astonishing prices – which also include a £ 100 burger – have been criticized by countless Brits on social media and even caught the attention of another celebrity chef.
Telly’s cook Tom Kerridge attacked Salt Bae – who rose to fame with his signature sprinkling – for his £ 630 steak, before being criticized for his own restaurant prices.
It was revealed today that Salt Bae was forced to pay former staff members $ 230,000 after being accused of defrauding them and firing them when they complained.
He allegedly kept his servers in the dark about how much they received in tip payments and “kept” them for himself.
The Turkish-born butcher was sued by four former waiters who worked for him at his Manhattan restaurant, Nurs-Et, in 2019.
The men alleged that Gökçe pooled tips among staff without entitlement and reduced the total amount of tips by 3%.
Responding to complaints in 2019, Salt Bae lawyer Christy Reuter said, “Restaurants are also committed to her vision, while ensuring that all team members have the tools to be successful, and that they are treated fairly and well paid.
“A number of tip employees on the team earn over $ 100,000 per year, and management applaud their accomplishments.
“Any allegation of unfair labor practices by Nusret or management is categorically denied.”
