Hey Venice, don’t say we didn’t warn you about the dangers of Lindsay Lohan pecking around Abbot-Kinney a few weeks ago. In a grand celeb-wing conspiracy to distract you from the fallen star, a number of high-powered actors (well beyond the usual cast of Disney princesses and friends of people who appeared once during a club scene on The Hills) came out to eat during this final stretch of Restaurant Week. We’re talking A-listers like Brangelina, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Conan O’Brien, and Natalie Portman eating around town. Even Scarlet Johannson and her soon-to-be-ex Ryan Reynolds reunited through tears to remind L.A. what celebrity dining looked like at its highest level. Take a look at where these top-tier celebs (and okay, a few minor players too) were eating in and around L.A. over the past week.

LA Market: Arnold Schwarzenegger had a business meeting over brunch, eating heart-healthy oatmeal with a banana. Jack Lalanne would surely approve, Ah-Nuld. [Grub Street]

Little Door: Exes Ryan Reynolds and Scarlet Johansson had a teary reunion here and at Chateau Marmont. Think they wanted to be seen or something? [NY Daily News]
