Remember last year when Turkish butcher and restaurant owner Nusret “Salt Bae” Gökçe set the Internet ablaze with his slick ponytail, white T-shirt, designer sunglasses and stylish seasoning technique?
Remember how it got real old real quick?
The online novelty soon wore off, but the business-savvy restaurateur was able to spin the Internet fame into the New York steakhouse Nusr-Et, and now another eatery is coming to the Arts District.
A notice that Salt Bae LA is seeking a liquor license has been posted in front of a building at 221 S. Garey St. Eater Los Angeles had reported in February that Bae planned to expand in Los Angeles with a chain of casual burger locations.
No details on when the restaurant will open, or what might be served, are available.
