Amanda Bynes had quite the busy night on Thursday.
Yesterday evening, the troubled star made a stop by Sugarfish restaurant in Beverly Hills with a male friend. Despite reports that the 28-year-old actress was turned away from the Japanese eatery, the restaurant tells us she was not refused service.
"Amanda Bynes wasn't denied service at Sugarfish," the restaurant tells E! News. "She came into the restaurant with a friend. They sat down for a moment. They looked at the menu and decided that they didn't like it. They wanted American fusion sushi. Sugarfish serves old Tokyo sushi. They wanted the deep fat fried rolls which we don't serve."
After leaving Sugarfish, Bynes and her friend ended up at Sharky's Mexican restaurant in Hollywood where they ate dinner. A source tells E! News that the twosome arrived at Sharky's around 7 p.m. and left 40 minutes later.
"She had blue hair and flowers in her hair. The guy was wearing a suit—they looked like an odd couple," the insider tells us. "She spent most of her time on the phone talking. She was acting kind of strange. She was in a booth table and she kept moving her back to the table and swiveling around back and forth. They ordered guacamole, chips and salsa."
Bynes and her pal capped the night off by stopping by Hollywood hot spot 1OAK. A source tells us while inside the club, Bynes didn't drink or dance but mostly spent her time looking in the mirror at herself. She was also fixated with looking at photos of Ariana Grande on her phone, the source adds.
"She arrived around midnight with her friend, artist JJ Brine, who had purple hair and was wearing a flower crown," another source tells us. "She had blue hair and was wearing a T-shit, a bandage dress and platforms. She wore sunglasses in the club and had a Band-Aid on her face. They stayed for about two hours and then left in an Uber X."
