A group of diners in Abu Dhabi paid over a half-a-million dirhams for a dinner meal on a single night.
The Dhs615,065 incident took place at Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Abu Dhabi, and the bill of the restaurant has gone viral on social media platforms.
The steakhouse is owned and run by Nusret Gokce aka Salt Bae, a handsome Turkish butcher, chef, and restaurateur. Nusret has a chain of steak houses scattered around the world. Nusret took to Instagram and shared the bill. He wrote, “Quality never expensive #saltbae #saltlife #salt…” with a picture of the bill.
Talking about the bill, the most expensive orders were bottles of Petrus, an extraordinarily rich, powerful and concentrated French wine.
The bill revealed that five bottles of Petrus cost the diners Dhs325,000, while two bottles of Petrus 2009 cost them another Dhs200,000. Other alcoholic beverages amounted to Dhs45,000 and one Chateau Margaux cost them Dhs15,500. Other expensive dishes were 15 Golden Baklavas, which amounted to Dhs5,850. The cheapest item on the bill was a Heineken.
The diners’ identity was not revealed but the half-a-million-dirham receipt went viral.
