This Sunday, June 5, a few days after winning his lawsuit against Amber Heard, Johnny Depp granted himself a dinner at the restaurant with some friends in the city of Birmingham, and as much to say that the note was rather salty.
Some people don’t do things by halves. This is the case of Johnny Depp, who treated himself to a dinner with friends at an insane cost in an Indian restaurant in Birmingham, England. The actor was in town to play on stage with his friend, guitarist Jeff Beck, who is currently on tour, and the two men met, with about twenty friends, at the Varanasi restaurant, which had been privatized for the occasion. “We got a surprise call on Sunday afternoon saying that Johnny Depp wanted to come eat with a group of friends“, explained Mohammed Hussain, the restaurant’s manager, to the Daily Mail. “I was shocked and at first thought it was a joke. But his security team arrived, inspected the restaurant and we reserved the entire space for them because we feared that they would be disturbed by other customers”. A real opportunity for this restaurant which, in the space of one evening, pocketed a note of 50,000 pounds (58,594 euros). “We made more money with Depp’s visit than on our busiest night of the week, Saturday, when we serve around 400 customers.“, added Mohammad Hussain.
Johnny Depp “adorable” according to restaurant staff
“He spent a lot of time talking with the staff, our friends and family and was happy to pose for photos with them. We would never have thought he was such a big star. He had plenty of time for all of us“, explained Mohammed Hussain, describing Johnny Depp as “a lovely guy with his feet on the ground“. His best memory of the evening? When the actor “wanted to take a break from the others” and came to join him for about twenty minutes to chat in his office. During this exchange, the restaurant manager did not wish to discuss the trial, as for Johnny Depp, he would have shown a great interest in surveillance cameras of the establishment.
