Jimmy Fallon is the much beloved late night host who gives so much of himself on The Tonight Show entertaining his guests and viewers at home.

But he's also known as an absolute sweetheart.


This was evident at a restaurant in the Hamptons on Monday night.

Fallon picked up the neighboring table's bill to express his gratitude for being left alone while dining with his wife and producer, Nancy Juvonen.

Enzo Lentini, the manager for Il Mulino, told Newsday that the talk show host usually comes in on Sundays, but he happened to come in on a Monday.

Due to the Hampton Classic Horse Show running through the weekend, the restaurant was busy for a Monday night. So Lentini ushered Fallon and his wife through the kitchen door.

"I walked him downstairs, through the kitchen and into the dining room."
"He's like, 'Enzo, where you taking me!' The kitchen [staff] got a big kick out if it, too — they were all clapping when he came through."

When Fallon and his wife sat down next to a table with two couples about the same age as the late-night host, they instantly recognized him.

However, Fallon and his wife of eleven years were able to enjoy their dinner undisturbed.

Lentini explained that the visiting New Yorkers appeared starstruck, but they respected the couple's privacy.

"They wanted to jump out of their skin. But they were cool — they didn't want to interrupt him."


After dinner, Fallon surprised his fellow diners with a grand gesture.

"He went up to them and said, 'I appreciate you guys not wanting to disturb us. I knew you wanted to say hello."
"So he picked up the tab. With tip it was $1,136."

According to Newsday, the story was confirmed by the celebrity's spokeswoman, Claire Mercuri.



Although it was generous of him to pick up a stranger's tab, some commenters couldn't get past the fact that diners in the Hamptons could afford the meal.


Regardless, it was the thought behind the gesture that counts. It was meant as a sincere "thank you."


No matter what the typical patron could afford when dining out in the Hamptons, Jimmy Fallon is still just an overall nice guy.

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
