Salt Bae restaurant called cops on a customer who refused to pay for $1G gold-wrapped steaks

A customer at the popular Nusr-Et steakhouse in Miami, owned by the Instagram star known as Salt Bae, had the cops called on him after he disputed a whopping $5,000 bill.

Duane Miranda said he was stunned after seeing the massive bill at the end of his group’s luxurious meal last month at the swanky restaurant, according to the Miami Herald.

Nusr-Et is known for its signature tomahawk steaks, in which the meat is cut tableside in a performative fashion, The restaurant’s owner, Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, performs the task himself on nights he’s in town.

Gökçe earned the nickname Salt Bae after going viral on Instagram for the culinary routine, in which he artfully cuts the meat and garnishes it with salt.

The gimmick has made him a social media and international sensation, and he has restaurants around the globe, including in New York City, Mykonos, Dubai, and Istanbul.

But Miranda is now on a mission to expose Nusr-Et after his dramatic dispute with the restaurant.

“I think they’re out to victimize their customers,” Miranda said, “It’s a bait-and-switch”.

On Dec 28, 2019, Miranda and his party of three couples dined at the Miami location, where they ordered a pair of steaks and a rack of lamb, Where things get completed is when Miranda claims the staff insisted that they order the “golden” option, in which the meats are wrapped in an edible 24-karat gold leaf.

What Miranda didn’t know, he said, was that the gold option came with an upcharge, costing $1,000 each, The standard tomahawk steaks are considerably cheaper at $275 each.
