London steakhouses that rival Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et restaurant
It’s hard to imagine a world, or rather an Instagram feed, without the existence of Salt Bae. Born Nusret Gökçe, the acclaimed chef and Instagram star rose to fame after his first music video went viral on the app in 2017, racking up more than 6.3 million views in the first year after its publication.
He’s of course instantly recognizable with his figure-hugging white t-shirts, long black hair slicked back into a bun, dark circular sunglasses, and always on hand with a pretty unique salt watering maneuver.
He is co-owner of Nusr-Et, the chain of steakhouses that of course bears his name.
It is a million dollar empire with 400 employees according to Turkish media. He has restaurants all over the world, but his latest establishment is in Knightsbridge, London.
While you can expect the best quality meat paired with service that is practically a spectacle in itself, some diners felt a bit lost after being faced with outrageous prices.
At Nusr-Et, a 24k gold tomahawk steak will set you back £ 850, that’s £ 18 for a side of mashed potatoes and even £ 11 for a singular Red Bull.
Some may argue that the prices are up for a reason due to the theatrical experience, but there are a plethora of other highly regarded steakhouses in London that rival the youngest in the neighborhood.
The coal shed
A welcoming and cozy place awaits you at the Coal Shed. Sizzling steaks and fish cooked over coals are their specialty while prime rib, porterhouse, rib eye and extra cuts come from family farms.
Sharing steaks is an added treat if you’re there with that special someone.
Think modern art, beautiful views, and wines donated by the South African owners of High Timber as you dine by the Thames.
Rib eye and tenderloin are made from Cumbrian beef that has been ripened for 28 days, accompanied by delicious sauces.
Flat Iron is a small chain with branches in Shoreditch, London Bridge, Spitalfields, Notting Hill, Soho, Covent Garden, Marylebone and King’s Cross, all with an industrial aesthetic.
Sirloin is a winning order here, but also be sure to keep an eye out for the special cuts that adorn the menu. There’s even free salted caramel ice cream at branches in Covent Garden and King’s Cross.
Bob bob ricard
Bob Bob Ricard is the most luxurious and therefore the most expensive of the bunch, but it seems to be somewhat affordable compared to some of Nusr-Et’s dishes.
This Soho hotspot features decadent decor, including the iconic “champagne press” buttons that hit Pinterest like wildfire a few years ago.
The Anglo-Russian menu of course offers steaks galore, including a luxurious chateaubriand no less.
