The restaurateur said the last strike involved a yolk omelet with “a little bit of egg white.”

NEW YORK — The owner of a popular New York City restaurant banned comedian James Corden for harassing employees — but lifted the ban the next day after the late-night host apologized.

Balthazar’s owner Keith McNally said Monday Instagram post that Corden was a “talented comedian, but a little cretin of a man” and “the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago.”

McNally detailed two incidents with the “Late Late Show” host. She said in June, Corden asked a manager to collect her party drinks after she finished her main course over a hair found in her food. McNealy alleged that Corden was “too dirty” for a manager.

The second strike happened earlier this month. McNeely said Carden asked to remake his wife’s egg yolk omelet because it had “a little bit of egg white mixed in.” The dish was remade but shipped with the wrong side.

“That’s when James Corden started yelling at the server like a maniac: ‘You can’t do your job! You can’t do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and make myself an omelet!'” McNally wrote.

A manager gave the party free glasses of champagne and things calmed down, but McNally said the server was “shaken up.”

However, Cordon’s ban lasted less than 10 hours. “James Corden just called me and apologized profusely,” McNally said Later post. The restaurateur said he believed in second chances.

“Anyone who is good enough to apologize to a deadbeat liar like me (and my staff) doesn’t deserve to be banned from anywhere,” McNeely wrote. “Especially Balthazar.”

Corden had not said anything publicly about the defeat as of Tuesday morning, and representatives for the comedian did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Washington Post, CBS News and other outlets.
