Harden's survey result
First announced in July 2017, this December 2019 opening on Knightsbridge from social media sensation, Nusret Gökçe is The Park Tower hotel’s answer to breathing life into the deathly dull-looking space that was for many years One-O-One (RIP). Now it’s to be Salt Bae’s latest branch in a steak chain that nowadays spans the globe.
Former incumbent on this site, One-O-One (sadly RIP), was of rare quality, but its closure wasn’t too hard to fathom, given the hollow ambience that has always dogged this prime Knightsbridge site. Being too low-key shouldn’t be a problem for long, however, with the announcement that in late 2018 the site’s new occupant will be the London home of Turkish-butcher-turned-Instagram-sensation, Salt Bae – real name Nusret Gökçe – a new stablemate to outposts in Miami and New York, as well as in the Middle East.
