Jimmy Fallon Thought Scarlett Johansson's Lunch Suggestion Was a Strip Club

But why would a strip club sit right inside Beverly Hills?

Everyone has their own familiar version of this story: fly into Los Angeles for a week of work, stay at a pricey hotel, ask your celebrity friend where to eat lunch, and almost end up at a strip club.

The time-tested tale was most recently heard from Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon who, while filming in L.A. and staying at the Montage, misunderstood a restaurant recommendation from Scarlett Johansson. To put it bluntly, Fallon thought that a nearby Sugarfish was actually called Sugarbush, which, well, sorta sounds like the kind of place that might not serve sushi and would charge for a private dance.

Thankfully, those gleaming white-teethed millionaires got their problems all sorted out (Fallon even enjoyed his meal next to Cesar Millan of Dog Whisperer fame!) and boy did they enjoy a thin-lipped laugh on national television.
