Piven Banned from Nobu; 'Nobu for You' says Owner

I heard about this a few days ago from my roommate and I thought that it would make a pretty nice piece, since I'm a fan of Jeremy Piven's.

Apparently, Piven took 12 or so of his best friends to one of the most exclusive restaurants in Aspn, Nobu Sushi.

According to Defamer:

"He came in with a large group of 12 or more without reservations and asked for a table. It was a very busy night, but a table, although cramped, was provided. On his way out, he made a nasty comment to the manager: 'Thanks for nothing.'"

Piven was at the HBO-sponsored festival to appear on a panel with fellow "Entourage" stars. Allegedly his tip also left something to be desired.

"He left a DVD of the first year of 'Entourage' to one of the waiters. [An employee] ran up the stairs and hurled it at him as he was leaving."

That's sad, because I really like[d] Jeremy Piven. I thought he'd be different, maybe, since he's been struggling at getting to fame for so long. Oh well. That's what I get.

At least he didn't leave a DVD copy of Judgement Night or Very Bad Things on the table. That would have sent to wrong message, I think.


  1. I know, I was disappointed to hear about that too. I have liked him since he played the best friend in Serendipity.

    Do you think he just walks around with spare DVDs of the show, just in case? How weird.

  2. I wondered about that myself. Like, if you broke into his SUV or whatever, would DVDs just come pouring out?
