Nusr-et officially opened earlier this year in which Gökçe himself appeared on the scene. Over its opening weekend, Gökçe was on site, wearing his trademark sunglasses, snapping photos, carving steaks, and sprinkling salt on various cuts of meat.
Dishes lean heavy on the beef side. Beef carpaccio, smoked beef, smoked rib eye, and steak tartar all feature on the starters menu alone. Additionally, customers can choose from salads, steaks, beef fillet, lamb, burgers, and sucuk – barbecued Turkish sausage. Specific dishes range from entire racks of lamb and gold-flecked ribeyes, to cheesy meatballs. Sides are also available in the form of mashed croquet, mashed potato, mushroom, spinach, potato chips, and onion flower.
For dessert, customers can choose from söbiyet, orange truffle, baklava, and vanilla ice cream.
Diners can also order from home via Uber Eats. Although most menu items are listed as presently unavailable, posted options include their 10.5-oz Gold Istanbul Steak, an American Wagyu striploin served with salad, two sides, and one gold dessert baklava for the small price of $590. Other specials include the Salt Bae 40-oz Tomahawk steak ($275), 8-hours Roasted Asado ($150), and 40-oz Ottoman Steak ($190).
Its starters, burgers, and sandwiches fall in the more affordable range, with their Salt Bae Burger – meat patty with blue cheese sauce, crispy onion, and a homemade bun – served with fries and a drink for $24.95, as well as its Nusret Wagyu Burger – a wagyu patty topped with cheddar cheese and caramelized onion – with fries and a drink for $29.95.
Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Dallas is the latest in the luxury brand’s restaurants, with locations in Turkey, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and, in the US, Miami, New York, and Boston.
