In the video, which the 42-year-old former Manchester United star quickly uploaded on Twitter, Nusret, wearing his iconic round sunglasses, comes up to the Beckhams and slices a steak before sprinkling it with salt with his famous, now viral, gesture and feeding a piece of it to David from his knife.
Having helped himself to the meat delicacy, Beckham captioned the clip with words of deep gratitude, adding that he hoped to see Nusret again in Miami.

His 12 year-old son Cruz shortly joined in by posting a picture of himself and his sister Harper imitating Nusret’s artful salt-sprinkling gesture while standing next to the chef.
David’s not the only Beckham to get in on the act, his elder son Brooklyn raved about his dinner on social media after visiting Salt Bae’s restaurant in January.
Nusret’s unique technique is the subject of a plethora of online memes:

The flamboyant chef made headlines last year when his theatrical salting technique went viral and earned him in hundreds of thousands of views overnight.
On top of that, reports emerged that the owner of the Nurs-Et chain of Turkish steakhouses had launched an extensive PR campaign involving VIP persons worldwide having splashed out about $2 million on that.
Just one example was a visit by Hollywood icon Leonardo Di Caprio to Nusret’s restaurant in Dubai.
