Welcome to AM Intel, a mini-news roundup to kick off the day

Nusret Gökçe – the Turkish butcher, restaurateur, and internet meme better known as Salt Bae – opened a Boston branch of his steakhouse, Nusr-et, on September 18 (100 Arlington St, Back Bay) on Saturday September 26, Boston closed the restaurant in an effort to remedy a number of alleged violations The Licensing Board and the Department of Inspection Services are both on the case, with allegations involving « continued and repeated non-compliance COVID-19 public safety standards ”, not to mention the opening without a health permit and the blocking of two emergency exits Nusr-et management will attend a virtual hearing with the Licensing Board on September 29 (ISD issues have already been resolved)

Images from the opening weekend posted on social media and various complaints to the city’s 311 service paint an alleged picture of overcrowding, poor social distancing and lax masks on the part of employees and customers

It’s an uncertain start for a restaurant group that also ran into problems at several of its other locations in the United States: Gökçe reportedly left a trail of labor violations in its wake, paying a settlement to the out-of-court settlement of $ 230,000 to several former New York employees (Gökçe ultimately won a lawsuit brought by Miami servers alleging illegal tip-sharing and other violations)

Gökçe has also sparked controversy for posting a photo of himself dressed as Fidel Castro and for posting articles about the diet of authoritarian Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro

When Nusr-et reopens, it will resume indoor dining as well as take out and delivery, for those who want to drop $ 600 on a gold leaf-wrapped steak dinner in the privacy of their own home
