Nusr-Et, the premium steakhouse chain owned by chef/restaurateur Nusret Gökçe (aka: Salt Bae), is to finally open its first London outpost at the Park Tower Knightsbridge Hotel in May.

According to a Google listing, the restaurant, which was first mooted back in July 2017, will open on 17 May - the day lockdown restrictions on indoor hospitality settings are currently scheduled to lift.

The menu typically features a range of steak plates including Nusr-Et Kobe and tomahawk, alongside a broad range of meat-based dishes including beef carpaccio; asado beef ribs; filet mignon steak; New York-style lamb; and a Nusr-Et burger.

However, as noted by Eater London​, among the restaurant's current job listings is the role of a sushi chef, suggesting the menu for the London restaurant may be broader than at some at its US and global counterparts.

Originally founded by Gökçe in Istanbul back in 2010, Nusr-Et currently operates 17 restaurants internationally - primarily concentrated in the US and Middle East.

The group has faced financial struggles and courted controversy in recent years. 

In early 2019 it was reported that the chain's owner, a Turkish firm called Dogus Holding, was struggling to repay foreign-exchange loans due to the plunging value of the lira following Turkey’s recession​, and was seeking to restructure its debt.

Meanwhile, later that year four former servers of the Nusr-Et restaurant in Manhattan, New York, received a $230,000 settlement from Gökçe’s company over tipping practices​.
