James Corden (Facebook)

The owner of Balthazar, a popular restaurant in New York City, has banned “Late Late Show” host James Corden for allegedly berating and yelling at servers.

Fiery restaurateur Keith McNally brands Corden the “most abusive customer ever” since the restaurant opened in 1997, according to a report by dailymail.co.uk. on Oct. 18.

McNally shared two examples of Corden’s nasty behavior in the restaurant.

In the first incident, McNally said that Corden found a hair in his main course when dining there in June, before demanding free drinks for the mistake. 

‘After eating his main course, Corden 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 on yelp or anything like that,” said McNally.

In the second incident, Corden asked for a table outside, and Carey ordered an egg yolk omelet with a salad. The TV host was dining with his wife, Julia Carey, at the eatery on October 9 for brunch. 

The couple complained to the server that there was ‘a little bit of egg white mixed with the egg yolk’ and sent the dish back.

‘The kitchen remade the dish but unfortunately sent it with home fries instead of salad. 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 omelet myself!’ said McNally.

The dailymail.co.uk added:

“M.K (server) was very apologetic and brought G. (floor manager) over to the table. 

“He returned the dish, and after that, everything was fine.  He gave them promo Champagne glasses to smooth things out. 

“G. said that Corden was pleasant to him but nasty to the server. M.K. was very shaken, but professional that she is, continued to finish her shift.”

Corden has yet to respond to the allegations of McNally.
