But really, though, does it get any better?! Leonardo DiCaprio met “Salt Bae” and the internet can’t handle it. The Revenant actor, 42, dined at the internet sensation’s restaurant in Dubai on Thursday, February 2, and got the chef’s signature treatment.

And in case you’re not up to date on your memes, have no fear: Salt Bae’s real name is Nusret Gokce. Gokce is a Turkish chef who owns a chain of six steak houses in Turkey called Nusr-Et. Last month, the chef, who also happens to be attractive, went viral — thanks to a swoon-inducing Instagram video in which he sprinkles salt on a piece of meat with a dramatic, elegant flourish. His salt sprinkle quickly turned into a meme, and the rest is history.

In the Instagram photo posted by Salt Bae, DiCaprio is watching in awe as Salt Bae is midsprinkle. And because it’s 2017, Salt Bae and the Oscar winner have since generated a whole new meme. 

“‘Grandpa what was 2017 like?’ *lighting cigar* 'Pull up a chair kid,’” one person on Twitter jokingly shared along the photo, while another added, “Leonardo DiCaprio to play 'salt bae' and win his second oscar.”
