Scar-Jo checked out the new buzz restaurant in Williamsburg last week

Actress Scarlett Johansson arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood

She was at Cherry Izakaya, which we hear great things about:

Last Friday, which was also the start of opening weekend for Lucy, her latest movie, Johansson and fiancé Romain Dauriac joined friends for the opening of the new Cherry Izakaya in Brooklyn, which is the sibling to the more upscale Cherry restaurant in Manhattan’s Dream Downtown hotel.

“Johansson was snuggling with Dauriac as the couple enjoyed a long dinner. The table was the last to leave the restaurant,” a source tells PEOPLE. An “izakaya” usually refers to a Japanese bar that serves small plates meant to be shared, and according to the source, the couple and their three pals ordered several small dishes such as the heavenly sounding shiitake confit gyoza dumplings, a seaweed salad and an order of shishito peppers (which, just saying, happens to be the type of spicy food a woman might eat to kickstart labor).

Although Johansson abstained from alcohol, the rest of the group sampled the house-made nectarine wine and several creative cocktails such as The Belmont, which is laced with bourbon, and the Aperol spritz (which Dauriac drank).
