Famed Restaurateur Keith McNally Thanks Hospital Nurses for His COVID Stay, with A Humorous Raunchy Twist


Keith McNally has been released after going stir crazy in a London Hospital recovering from covid-19. The legendary owner of Balthazar and Pastis restaurants, among others, has no doubt been giving the staff a memorable time.

Today Keith posted a note to Instagram thanking everyone. The message is quite sincere right up til the end, which has a humorous tag I hope they appreciated. It reads: “And I’d like to take this moment to personally apologize to Nurse Parton for last night’s condom business. (I really thought I had one with me. So sorry.)”

I don’t know if there is a Nurse Parton. But god bless her. Anyway, Keith sounds like he’s on the mend!
