Dinner diva Bono


Dinner diva Bono

Bono amazed staff at New York restaurant Butter when he made a string of special requests, including having his salad pre-chopped.

Bono insisted on specially-prepared food when dining out recently, it has been claimed.

The U2 frontman amazed fellow diners at New York eatery Butter on Tuesday (23.02.10) when he made a string of requests to restaurant staff - and then made sure they were carried out.

A source said: "He demanded that his salad be chopped. And he made sure it was when it arrived."

The 'One' singer - who was eating with his bandmate The Edge - sent staff into a panic when he asked for a specific type of bottled water not stocked by the eatery.

The source - who was seated at the next table to the rockers - added to the New York Daily News newspaper: "He wanted Perrier, which they didn't have, so a waiter actually ran across the street to a store and bought him a bottle."

Bono isn't the only star to have caused a stir in a restaurant.

Lady Gaga reportedly exasperated staff at London eatery Hakkasan last year after she demanded to be re-seated because another diner was "ogling" her.

She later asked staff to help her look for her "lost" Chanel handbag. After a frenzied search, another diner found the bag under a discarded napkin.

The eccentric singer also insists on taking her own cup and saucer everywhere with her.


The band who are the very definition of stadium rock head indoors for their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour.
