James Corden, a comedian and television host, was briefly barred from a New York restaurant. Owner of the Balthazar restaurant, Keith McNally, criticised the late-night programme host for allegedly acting inappropriately at his establishment, according to People. The comedian has been essentially barred from McNally’s restaurant, according to a post on Instagram.
“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,” Keith McNally said.
He said that James Corden misbehaved there as well at McNally’s former eatery, Cafe Luxembourg. Keith McNally recalled how James Corden stopped by the eatery in June, saying that the “TV personality showed the hair to Balthazar manager G. who was very apologetic. Corden was extremely nasty to G, 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 a separate incident that happened earlier this month, the restaurant owner charged James Corden with criticising the food his wife ordered.
