#SaltBae: Where’s the Beef? Nusr-Et Manhattan Steakhouse

by Mitch Feierstein about 8 months 3 weeks ago

Nusr-Et NYC Steakhouse

Salt Bae: Doing what he does.

Where’s the beef? You no longer need to ask. If you want meat chargrilled to perfection, Nusr-Et is the place for you.

After months of hype and build-up, the Manhattan debut of the 150-seat Turkish steakhouse Nusr-Et finally happened. I was skeptical whether the butcher, Nusret Gökçe, was the real deal and if this Turkish culinary wizard could deliver in New York’s oversaturated, highly competitive steakhouse business.

Nusret Gökçe, or Salt Bae as he’s known after an internet meme of him showing off his flashy “salt moves” earned him over ten million Instagram followers, quickly evolved from a skilled Turkish butcher to an iconic culinary artisan.

His success stems from adept precision. Gökçe not only delivered, but delivered beyond my lofty expectations.

Located at 60 West 53rd St., opening night at Nusr-Et was exceptional in every way. The buzz was incredible. All of the staff were warm and friendly, treating everyone as if they were not only regulars, but friends. My extremely attentive server, Maysa, patiently detailed each menu item to me, and given that this was a new menu on opening night, I was suitably impressed by the feat.

I asked Maysa to give me the signature dishes and to “knock my socks off.” I started with meat sushi, fired up tableside and served with avocado crème and shaved shoestring potatoes. The three delectable bite-sized pieces were fabulous and the taste combinations worked very well. Next up was a quick sample of “spaghetti.” This dish consisted of thinly sliced steak strips that you twirl around your fork like spaghetti. They tasted magnificent and the strips simply melted in my mouth.

For my main course, I had the excellent Ottoman steak – a huge mustard-marinated, bone-in ribeye, grilled to perfection and sliced at my table by Nusret Gökçe, who demonstrated his mastery with his knives and flashed his patented “salt move” as the finale. For dessert, I had pistachio baklava with ice cream, which was heavenly.

Nusret now has a total of eleven restaurants located in Turkey, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, and, most recently, the USA. His first restaurant in the U.S. recently opened in Miami where we are told they serve 1,500 meals a day! If you are in New York or Miami and love grilled meats, Nusr-et is a must.

by Mitch Feierstein about 1 year 4 weeks ago

No lessons were learned from that catastrophe as trillions of taxpayer dollars were provided in the form of bank bailouts from the U.S. Federal Reserve. Despite their name, U.S. Federal Reserve Banks are not part of the federal […]
