James Corden Banned From New York Restaurant for Mistreating Staff

In New York City, James Corden is no longer welcome at a renowned restaurant. The owner of the fancy Manhattan restaurant Balthazar said that the host of “The Late Late Show” was rude. He called him a “tiny Cretin of a man” and told him he could never eat there again.

“[He’s] the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago,” said Keith McNally in a scathing Instagram post put up late Monday.

“I don’t often 86 a customer, to today I 86’d Corden. It did not make me laugh,” he wrote. McNally said that Corden, who has said in the past that he has anger problems, was rude to his servers by asking for free things and yelling at them.

A manager’s report says that the first time they ran into Corden was in June. People say that the comedian ate his main course before he showed a server a hair in it.

“Get us another round of drinks this second,” McNally alleged Corden demanded. “And also take care of all of our drinks so far. This way I write any nasty reviews in yelp or anything like that.”

The post says that the second thing happened on October 9. Corden’s late-night talk show has a regular segment called “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.” According to reports, he called a server over to tell them that his wife’s omelette had a little bit of egg white mixed in with the egg yolk.

The restaurant made his wife’s meal again, but instead of a salad, they brought her home fries. That made Mr. Corden so angry that he told the server to “yell like crazy.”

“You can’t do your job! You can’t do your job,” he allegedly screamed. “Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelette myself!” The dining impresario said Corden also “behaviored similarly in my former restaurant, Cafe Luxembourg, a few years back.”

Despite several demands for comment from numerous social media posts, Corden has yet to publicly address McNally’s allegations. But in 2020, he said he had anger problems that began when he first became famous in the late 2000s.

“I started to behave like a brat that I just don’t think I am,” he told the New Yorker. “It’s so intoxicating, that first flush of fame, and I think it’s even more intoxicating if you’re not bred for it.”

He said that he went to a therapist because of how he was acting. During the first session, he told the therapist, “I used to be a better person than this.”

In the same year, comedian Eric André talked about cancel culture and made a reference to James Corden’s actions by saying, “James Corden is f—ed if [being mean] is the only criteria to get called out.”
