Salt Bae Might Open A Restaurant In Boston

By Catherine Ann Buckler

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Most are familiar with the viral videos of Nusret Gökçe that became Internet memes—however, they probably know him better as "Salt Bae."

"Salt Bae" was a pseudonym for the viral star, who has created a recognizable technique for salting food.

Now, Salt Bae is headed to our city, according to Eater Boston. The publication reported on a series of clues from the meme-star's Instagram story.

"Salt Bae was inside the former Nahita space last night...[his Instagram story] shows him outside of the restaurant around 2 a.m. last night and then opening the door and walking through the," the Eater article said.

This wouldn't be Salt Bae's first venture into the restaurant business. His restaurant chain 'Nusr-et' has locations in New York and Dubai.

He's not everybody's bae, though.

After he served Venezuelan President Nicholás Maduro at his restaurant in Istanbul, Business Insider reported multiple 'Nusr-et' locations' ratings plummeted due to negative online reviews.

Back in August, Salt Bae was met with critical reception after serves at his Miami 'Nusr-et' location joined a collective action lawsuit alleging that he was tip pooling and not compensating his workers with minimum wage or overtime.

He also sparked controversy in Miami after posting a picture dressed as the dead Cuban dictator Fidel Castro with the caption "they say you too started a revolution."
