Salt Bae is continuing on in his quest for global domination. Hot on the heels of his latest New York City restaurant, he’s headed to the skies of London. That’s right, Salt Bae is staking his claim in London’s ever-growing number of rooftop venues with a Nusr-Et rooftop terrace in Knightsbridge.
You’d think we’d be fast approaching maximum capacity for how many rooftop venues could possibly exist in London. I mean, there’s only so many roofs in London. And some of them are, you know, triangular and pointy – seats and tables would slide right off their rooftop angles. And yet, every summer there seems to be more and more of them.
But, we’re not complaining, that’s for sure. After all, who doesn’t love a drink and a meal with a view? Cleary Nusret Gökçe (aka Salt Bae – you didn’t think Salt Bae was his real name did you?) has seen the UK’s appetite for it. And he’s keen to add his own salt-y flair. The rooftop acts as a sort of second seating location, perched above his existing Knightsbridge restaurant. It joins his many other eponymous restaurants around the world, bringing his international restaurant count comfortably into the 20s.
The food will be typically Nusr-Et, taking all the signature dishes and serving them al-fresco for the first time. They range from Beef Carpaccio and Burrata with basil pesto & Heirloom tomatoes, to Nusr-Et salads, a variety of sushi rolls, and, of course, the famed steaks.
With seating for 70 among the greenery and foliage, the rooftop will be a secluded and intimate way for people to sample a Nusr-Et meal – where luxury, performance, and food collide. The rooftop terrace will be open every day from midday until late. With reactions to Nusr-Et ranging all across the board, you’ll really just have to go and check it out yourself.
