who Instagram-decreed on Monday, October 17 that the overly-excitable Late Late Show host has been banned from popular New York City French restaurant Balthazar.

Long a staple of the scène, Balthazar is popular with celebrities and NPCs alike for its decadent, haute-Epcot vibes, onsite bakery, and reliable executions of French staples like escargot and steak frites.

he restaurant serves around 1,500 people a day, and out of all of them, McNally calls Corden “the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago.”

He says that he doesn’t “often 86 a customer,” but “today I 86’d Corden.”

“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 [don’t] write any nasty reviews in yelp or anything like that.’”

– Option two: He finds a new downtown French spot to terrorize. Maybe Lucien.

– Option three: He performs a kitchen ambush, crosswalk karaoke-style, in his mouse costume, hops on a chef’s head, and takes the whole place over like Ratatouille from Ratatouille.
