Internet-famous chef “Salt Bae” opens his Nusr-Et Steakhouse in downtown Dallas

Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe announced to Dallas and his millions of Instagram followers that the Dallas outpost of his Nusr-Et steakhouse will open Thursday, Mar. 4. The date marks more than a year-and-a -half since Nusr-Et pledged the restaurant was “opening soon and a lengthy delay from the September date insiders told us the steakhouse was set to open last year. (The photos are from that announcement). Insiders told me mid-February that the restaurant would open “no later than the end of the month,” but accuracy is not among Nusr-Et’s strengths.

The restaurant sits on the ground floor of a 25-story new office building at Pearl Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway in downtown Dallas. Nusr-Et’s dining room is trimmed out with plenty of warm woods and gold tones and faces Klyde Warren Park.

Gökçe gained his Salt Bae nickname for the way he dramatically anoints seared steaks with a spray of salt released from his fingertips that fall to his forearm then onto the steaks. 

He and his restaurant group operate 17 Nusr-Et steakhouses across the globe – including New York and Miami with plans to expand to L.A. and Las Vegas this year. (If I recall correctly, the ownership group is the same team behind Da Mario, the Italian gem in Frisco that shuttered in 2020.)

For reservations, guests are being directed to the group’s Miami location, 305-415-9990.
