Whichever one of you told Salt Bae that he was famous…this is all your fault.
Here’s what happened: four people went to Nur-Et in Knightsbridge, London, for a night of dinner and drinks. The head chef at this restaurant is Nusret Gökçe — better known as “Salt Bae” online — which was part of the appeal for this clearly clout-chasing crowd.
They seemed to have no problem gorging like pigs on all the finest things that the restaurant had to offer — until the bill came.
It was only then that the guests realized they’d rang up a total of more than forty thousand USD on their bill.
They splurged on the Golden Tomahawk — a steak covered in golf leaf (more than $1000 USD) — and a Turkish dessert costing more than $600 USD.
“Other items included pricey sides such as one sautéed broccoli (£14), a portion of asparagus (£18), three herb-crusted fries (£30) and one side of mashed potato (£12),” reported the Manchester Evening News. (Each side was between $20 and $25 USD, for purposes of understanding.)
They also told Salt Bae to bring out his best wine — so he brought out three bottles of wine that were more than $10,000 each. (And to understand that this restaurant really isn’t cheap, one can of Red Bull cost more than $15 USD).
