'Salt Bae' Chef To Open Brickell Steakhouse

You may have heard of Chef Nurset Gökçe -- but chances are, if anything, you'll know him by his alter ego: "Salt Bae." 

Gökçe rose to fame online after video showed him butchering a steak and flamboyantly sprinkling salt on it. 

Now, he is set to open his first steakhouse in the United States in October -- right in Brickell, the Miami Herald reports.

The new Nusr-et Turkish Steakhouse will open at 999 Brickell Ave. 

Gökçe is not just an overnight viral sensation. He has 10 steakhouse locations abroad, including in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Istanbul.

The chef and butcher gained a loyal following on social media for his impressive knife skills, but it was his signature salt finish that made him the subject of viral videos and memes.
