Los Angeles has a new hot spot on the map!

Simone, a new restaurant from Avengers: Infinity War director Joe Russo and James Beard-winning chef Jessica Largey, had its grand opening on Saturday night — and some of Hollywood’s biggest stars stopped by to check it out.

Scarlett Johansson and her Avengers costars Chris Evans and Don Cheadle were all in attendance as were former Community costars Gillian Jacobs, Joel McHale and Yvette Nicole Brown.

Also joining in on the fun were Oscar winner Marisa Tomei, Modern Family’s Julie Bowen, and Jon Favreau, who helped produce The Avengers and its 2015 sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
