The suggestion of luxury begins the moment you walk up to a Nusr-Et restaurant.
Outside, bouncers in suits loiter around velvet ropes. Inside, through the heavy brass doors, are rows of lit-up refrigerators stocked with thick, marbled pieces of meat on metal hooks. A large neon sign reads "No Salt, No Love." A host might whisk you away to a table, where waiters dressed in black latex gloves circle like hawks.
With its moody lighting and pulsing house music, the dining room feels like a nightclub. And it has just one star attraction: Nusret Gökçe, known around the world as Salt Bae.
Gökçe, whose culinary empire spans three continents, often travels from restaurant to restaurant, taking selfies with excited guests and performing his flamboyant salting technique throughout the night.
"He walked in, it was freaking Backstreet Boys," a former manager who worked closely with the celebrity butcher in his Miami and New York restaurants said. "Everybody was screaming."
