ZERO people turned up to hand in their resume at Salt Bae's London restaurant today after the flash chef put out an open call to waiters and waitresses to apply for jobs.
Nusret Gökçe, who is best known as internet sensation 'Salt Bae', flung open the doors of his new Knightsbridge steakhouse, Nusr-et for a hiring spree.
But despite expecting queues around the corner, The Sun can reveal not a single person turned up to give in their CV.
Salt Bae – who charges £630 for a golden tomahawk steak – put out the call to arms for new staff last night.
He urged aspiring chefs, waiters, waitresses and bar staff to come forward and apply for work at his latest restaurant in London by giving in their resume.
Posting an ad on Instagram for the open day to his 39.2million followers, the restaurant owner and celebrity chef, said: “We are hiring waiters, runners, bartenders, bar backs, kitchen porters, toilet attendants.
“International opportunities, growth and development, perkbox discounts, please bring your resume.”
It is unclear how much anyone would get paid working for the Turkish chef, but he asked those interested to attend the restaurant today, tomorrow or Thursday.
Salt Bae himself was inside the restaurant earlier, in the hope that possible new staff could see him in action and want to join his team.
He was smoking his charcoal grills, and working with other chefs while other waiters and waitresses prepared the tables for lunchtime service.
A member of staff told The Sun: “We’ve not had anyone come in yet, but we’ve got applications online.
“We will be paying staff dependent on their experience, and the more experience they have the more they will be paid.”
When Sun reporter Liam Coleman tried to hand over his CV (despite years of experience in bars and restaurants) they told him he had to apply online.
Nusret became an internet sensation as Salt Bae, recently opened his 15th restaurant with a jaw-dropping which includes a £100 gold-covered burger, a £50 cappuccino and £18 onion flower.
The Turkish butcher now has a global restaurant empire thanks to his theatrical steak presentation – immortalised in a 2017 video watched over 17 million times.
The priciest item on his new menu is a £630 'giant tomahawk' steak, which again is wrapped in a 24-carat gold leaf.
However, even smaller items come with a hefty price tag – an onion flower costs £18, while a Coke is £9 and a Red Bull is £11.
A recent whopping £1,812.40 bill included a 15 per-cent service charge of £236.40.
The receipt showed the customer bought a single 'golden burger', which cost £100, a £23 salad, two prawn tempura rolls costing £60, and a £10 corn on the cob.
Celebrities including TOWIE star Gemma Collins and Danielle Lloyd have both been to visit the new restaurant and were left with eye-watering bills.
And Brits hoping to visit for dinner might be better advised to book a flight to the eatery in Turkey instead – as the trip would be cheaper.
It comes after new figures showed there was a record high 1.2million job vacancies in the hospitality and retail industry.
Data from ONS (Office for National Statistics) showed that in the hospitality sector, vacancies increased by 23 per cent, from the same time last year.
