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

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

Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

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.
