James Corden, a comedian and host, was prohibited from a New York restaurant due to reported misbehaviour. Owner of the Balthazar restaurant Keith McNally claimed that the late-night show host mistreated the personnel there. McNally said in a statement, “James Corden is a hugely gifted comedian, but a tiny Cretin of a man. And the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago. I don’t often 86 a customer, to today I 86’d Corden. It did not make me laugh.”
Additionally, according to McNally, James Corden misbehaved at his former eatery, Cafe Luxembourg. Keith McNally recalled James Corden’s June visit to the eatery, saying the TV host showed the hair to Balthazar manager G. who was really sorry. Corden treated G really poorly and said, “Get us another round of drinks this second. And also take care of all of our drinks so far. This way I write any nasty reviews in yelp or anything like that.”
In November, there was a second incident, according to the restaurant owner. The apparent rudeness was caused by an omelette. In response to his wife’s request, the restaurant sent an egg white omelette to James’ home. However, he quickly called to voice his displeasure that some yolk was there. The restaurant cooked the dish again as requested, but sent it this time with home fries rather than salad. He created a mess of a situation, “That’s when James Corden began yelling like crazy to the server, ‘You can’t do your job! You can’t do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelette myself!’ “
James reportedly lost his temper once more and yelled insults at the employees in response to a call. After these two occurrences, McNally declared that James was unquestionably the worst patron the restaurant had ever dealt with in its 25 years of operation. According to the McNally’s recent Instagram post, James Corden had been permanently barred from the eatery.
