Parodied on Saturday Night Live as “the most important chef in the world,” new paperwork reveals restaurateur Nusret Gökçe, aka Salt Bae, is moving quickly to bring his first Nusr-Et Steakhouse to Las Vegas.
Famed for his outlandish salt sprinkling presentations, 32 million Instagram followers, and a menu capped by a $1,000, 24-karat gold coated wagyu tomahawk steak, the polarizing chef will make the Strip his 19th expansion for the international chain.
First revealed last December, the two-story Nusr-Et Steakhouse will move into vacant space D5 at The Park and fill 12,535 square feet, equipped with kitchens on both floors, two dining rooms, plus the option of patio and balcony seating.
New job listings for managerial posts emphasize a focus on “upscale fine dining” served “in a beautiful atmosphere,” where “unique and outgoing personalities are not only appreciated, but sought-after.”
Previously allocating an estimated $4.5 million in construction costs alone, the restaurant is located next door to Sake Rok and a short distance from the T-Mobile Arena, large enough for a maximum occupancy of 572 inside.
A proposed opening date, menu hint, or acknowledgment from the Salt Bae himself have all yet to be announced.
