Nusret Gökçe (Turkish pronunciation: [nusˈɾet ɟœcˈtʃe]), nicknamed Salt Bae, is a Turkish chef, food entertainer and restaurateur whose technique for preparing and seasoning meat became an Internet meme in January 2017.
He owns Nusr-Et, a chain of luxury steak houses. As of 2021, he has Nusr-Et branches in Ankara, Bodrum, Istanbul, and Marmaris in Turkey; Mykonos in Greece; Miami, New York, Boston, Dallas, and Beverly Hills in the United States; London in the United Kingdom; Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates; Doha in Qatar; and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. The name of his restaurant chain comes from his own name and “Et”, which means “meat” in Turkish.

Gökçe visited several countries including Argentina and the United States between 2007 and 2010, where he worked in local restaurants for free, in order to gain experience as a cook and a restaurateur.[2] After his return to Turkey, Gökçe opened his first restaurant in Istanbul in 2010[4] and later opened a Dubai restaurant in 2014.[5]

In January 2017 he became more widely known as Salt Bae through a series of viral Internet videos and memes that show him “suavely” cutting meat and sprinkling salt,[6] such as “Ottoman Steak”, posted on his restaurant’s Twitter account.[7] The post was viewed 10 million times on Instagram, after which he was dubbed “Salt Bae” due to his peculiar way of sprinkling salt: dropping it from his fingertips to his forearm, and then onto the dish.[6] Due to the viral exposure gained from this post, Gökçe’s profile has expanded enormously and he has served a wide range of celebrities and politicians from around the world.[8][9]

Despite the international fame, early professional reviews in 2018 of his New York City steakhouse were generally negative.[10][11] The New York Post’s Steve Cuozzo called the restaurant “Public Rip-off No. 1” and Joshua David Stein writing in GQ called the steak mundane and the hamburgers overcooked.[10] Other critics described the dishes as “over-salted as they are overpriced”,[12] the “meat was tough with globs of fat and gristle, and severely lacking in flavor”,[13] and that “finishing a meal there constitutes some kind of personal victory over your own body and instincts and mouth”.[14] Reviewers described the dining experience as “overpriced”.[9][15]

However, for entertainment, reviewers were more positive.[16] Eater’s Robert Sietsema states, “If you are intent on judging New York’s new branch of Nusr-Et only as a steakhouse, you’ll probably be disappointed … If, on the other hand, you appraise the place as a dinner theater, you will find it satisfying—but only if Salt Bae is in the house”.[16]

In November 2019, four of Gökçe’s former employees accused him of getting a share of their tips. They alleged that they were fired from his New York restaurant when they tried to ask questions about the tips. A trial was set to take place to investigate the issue until Gökçe reached a settlement with his former employees and paid them $230,000. Explaining why he had fired them, he said: “I was not satisfied with the performance of the four employees… Since they were fired, they acted with the feeling of ‘look what we are going to do to you and put forward these tip allegations.”[17]
