Salt Bae feeds David Beckham steak in New York City

By Chloe Best

David Beckham and Salt Bae have finally met! The retired football star came face-to-face with the viral sensation (a.k.a. Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe) at his restaurant NUSR-ET in New York. The 42-year-old shared an Instagram video of Nusret slicing steak and sprinkling it with salt for David and his kids, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.

"Thank you for a great lunch… pleasure to meet you and hell of an experience @nusr_et," David captioned the clip, adding: "See you in Miami."

David and his family appear to be big fans of the chef, who became a social media sensation after videos of him artfully sprinkling salt onto his cooking went viral. In January, David gave his own impression of the 'salt bae' meme in a video taken during his family weekend away with Gordon Ramsay and his children, where they were making fresh pizzas together.

Meanwhile, his son Brooklyn paid a visit to Nusret's restaurant in January, where he documented his experience on social media and shared his own attempt at the salt sprinkling technique.

David and his brood are currently in New York for the half term holidays, and supported Victoria Beckham at her New York Fashion Week show on Sunday. The fashion designer took viewers backstage in a live stream before the show, revealing that: "A few little people have just come to visit me, and I am very excited!" The camera then turned to inside the room, where husband David, Romeo, Cruz and Harper were all waiting. "The kids are all here, it's not the same without Brooklyn but the other kids are all here," Victoria explained. David, who was dressed in a smart suit, added: "We are all very excited."
