Now this is salt.
Nusret Gokce, also known as Salt Bae, hires a chef to make expensive menu items like Golden Giant Tomahawk steaks, which cost $ 1,975 (£ 1,450) for a paltry $ 16 an hour.
The renowned chef is looking for a Chef de Partie for his famous London steakhouse, Nusr-Et, and offers the role of station manager only $ 16 to $ 18 (£ 12 to £ 13.50) per hour, plus tips, for their service. That salary, according to the Daily Mail, equates to a side of mashed potatoes or sweet corn at the trendy eatery.
The job was posted on caterer.com, noting that the restaurant “offers a highly competitive salary.”
“Great opportunity for an experienced Chef De Partie to join the Nusret team in the new restaurant in London,” read the post. “As Chef De Partie you will work with some of the finest ingredients from the UK and abroad in one of the most famous steakhouses in the world.”
The page continued: “You will play an important role in a large team and will support the chef during the service. For the successful candidate, Nusret London offers a highly competitive salary and excellent opportunities to develop a global career.”
After opening in September, Nusr-Et London in Knightsbridge was heavily criticized for its outrageous prices, which include desserts at $ 34 (£ 25), $ 12 (£ 9) sodas, a Golden Burger for $ 136 (£ 100), the Golden Giant Striplion for $ 1,839 (£ 1,350) and Golden Cafes for $ 681 (£ 500), as noted by Sun.
Gokce, 38, went viral in 2017 when a video surfaced in which he flamboyantly throws salt on a piece of steak. The restaurateur has expanded his brand with 38 million followers on social media and has opened 17 restaurants across the globe.
A-lists like DJ Khaled, Leonardo DiCaprio and David Beckham have visited his steakhouses to get saturated salt and iron.
In August, Gokce and his steakhouse chain were sued for allegedly strangling workers’ wages. Five barbecue men filed the lawsuit in New York City, claiming that Gokce denied them overtime pay. The men each claimed to have a weekly wage of $ 1,125 and worked over 70 hours every seven days.
The subpoena claimed that the grillmen perform other minor tasks such as “taking out garbage, washing up, cleaning hoods, cleaning toilets, preparing special meals for the managers and Gokce when present, and running errands and buying products when there was a shortage” at the restaurants. “
Salt Bae was previously sued in April when he was sued over a $ 5 million copyright infringement lawsuit by Brooklyn artist William Hicks, who claimed the chef stole his artwork and used it without permission.
