According to his Twitter, Jimmy Fallon and his family got the heave-ho at Posto on Saturday. It seems an employee named “carb face Carol” (per Fallon) didn’t take kindly to what he told us, during his pizza tour with Mario Batali, about Posto’s other place, Spunto. Fallon, who actually likes Spunto (he said it would win a “Ritz cracker pizza” contest) called for his Twitter followers to boycott its sister restaurants (“I actually hope that you choose to never go to Posto, Gruppo or Vezzo. that girl was laughing at us, telling us to leave”) though he eventually took it back (“I'm sorry. i am venting. don't boycott. don't hate. i just have never been thrown out of a restaurant.”). Add to all this that a Gawker spy claims to have seen a sidewalk scuffle after his dishonorable discharge. The entire Twitter exchange is below (read from bottom up).
i'm sorry. i am venting. don't boycott. don't hate. i just have never been thrown out of a restaurant.
in that pizza tasing - i actually said - that Posto is good. they shouldn't be in this competition because the pizza is thin (cracker like)
@TheSavage13 Spunto too. i have actually never said that quote.
@RobdaHood yes. but not on purpose
i soooooooo love technology. and i soooooo love the power of people.
i sooooooo love technology. and i love people.

@hazelrabun so sad. sorry about that.
@DaveEsq Don't mess with the Fallon Family
@DrRandPink @DomainMaximus i love momofuku
@FullofGiggles true that. it just shows... not a classy move. sorry for going off...
i actually hope that you choose to never go to Posto, Gruppo or Vezzo. that girl was laughing at us, telling us to leave.
dudes. no joke. i actually like that pizza!
@EnriqueH73 I just looked and they grabbed some quote off of New York online and thought i di not like the pizza.
@FullofGiggles don't bother. this girl's smiling face is stuck in my memory. (i actually like the pizza there!) fools!
I have never ever EVER reviewed Posto. Carb face Carol and owners Jonathan Tweedy and Antonio Gomez should be ashamed. not cool.
i am not (or ever will be) a food critic. this girl was laughing as we (my wife and I) were wheeling the kids out.
never go to Posto, Gruppo or Vezzo in New York City. i actually cannot believe how rude they were.
not anymore. please... if you like little babies and hate carb face carol...
i actually like posto.
carb face carol rude to my 2 year old niece and an 11 month old (sleeping) because they heard i didnt like the pizza there.
Posto on 2nd (they also own Gruppo and Vezzo)
actually asked to leave a pizza place today
