Where's the Meat? Salt Bae's Miami Restaurant (and 5 Other Top Steak Houses)

In Miami, we know good meat. Here's where to indulge.


When word got out that “Salt Bae” was to open a Miami steakhouse, Nusr-Et, the social media set lost their virtual minds.

To add to the hysteria, Nusret Gökçe—the Insta-famous, salt-flicking celebrity chef-butcher—spent the first few weeks at the restaurant cutting meat tableside, posing for selfies and, of course, flicking salt on various meat dishes. He’s even got celebs like DJ Khaled, Diddy and Rihanna digging his flick and signature dishes like Beef Chop with Mustard Sauce, Cheesy Meatballs, Smoked Beef and Barbecued Turkish Sausage.

Whether you subscribe to the hubbub or not, one thing’s certain: When it comes to delicious meat, Nusr-Et delivers. High blood pressure be damned.
