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 legendary Irish rock group – comprised of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr – perform a number of shows as part of the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE tour.
