James Corden Issues an Apology Following the Restaurant’s Ban


Comedian James Corden apologises after Balthazar restaurant ban

Monday, James Corden was temporarily banned from a New York restaurant after being “very hostile” to staff on two separate occasions, according to the eatery’s owner.

Keith McNally, the owner of the famed New York bistro Balthazar, stated that Corden had been an “abusive customer” following a few order mistakes.

However, he then disclosed that the actor and TV personality had called and “apologized profusely.” Mr McNally rescinded the prohibition and stated, “I am a firm believer in second chances.”

Mr McNally had previously criticized the host of The Late Late Show in a blog post as “a tremendously talented comedian, but a small moron.”

He stated that the first incident occurred in June, when Corden ate at Balthazar and showed the manager a hair after his main course, implying that it was in his food.

Mr McNally remarked, “Although this is horrifying, it occurs rarely in all restaurants.” He stated that Corden was disagreeable and told the manager, “Get us another round of drinks immediately.” In addition, please take care of our drinks.” In November, a second incident occurred, according to the restaurant owner. The alleged rudeness was triggered by an omelette.

Mrs Corden ordered an omelette with egg yolks, gruyere cheese, and salad. James called their server a few minutes after receiving the dinner and informed her that there was a small amount of egg white mixed in with the egg yolk,” Mr McNally stated on Instagram. The employees at Balthazar replicated the dish, but “unfortunately sent it with home fries rather than salad,” he continued.

“At that point, James Corden began ranting incoherently at the server, ‘You can’t perform your job! You can’t do your job! Perhaps I should prepare the omelette myself.”

Mr McNally referred to the comedian as “the rudest customer” since the establishment’s 25-year inception. The BBC has sought comment from Corden’s staff. He has not publicly addressed the charges.

The dispute appears to have been addressed from the restaurant’s perspective, as Mr McNally remarked, “Anyone who is gracious enough to apologize to a slacker like me (and my crew) does not deserve to be blacklisted from anywhere. Particularly Balthazar.”
