Social media sensation Chef Nusret Gökçe, better known as “Salt Bae,” has now brought restaurant Nusr-Et Steakhouse to the heart of Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Reconnecting with TPG Architecture, the design firm behind Nusr-Et Las Vegas, the new upscale location encapsulates the viral personality of Salt Bae, Gökçe’s butcher background, and the energy of the neighborhood.
The 11,000 square feet “Nusr-Et Steakhouse Meatpacking” space incorporates a classic New York-style butcher shop that welcomes and bids guests farewell. Serving as a focal point of the restaurant, the element serves to underscore the design intent and celebrates both the craft and art of butchery.
Moving into the 187-seat dining room, the space seamlessly transforms from day to night with an interior dressed with industrial dark metals, red brick, white subway tiles, and concrete floors. While the LED lights illuminating the dining room express a pendant rail system inspired by New York’s subway system. Along the back wall is a 30-foot-long feature bar defined by a mix of copper and mirrored panels with iron rivet details that serves to anchor the restaurant.
Finishing up the design of the restaurant is a red neon sign that reads “No Salt, No Life” and a backlit portrait of Salt Bae that overlooks the space.
