Jimmy Fallon has been opening his checkbook to support NYC restaurants as local eateries struggled to stay afloat amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Sources said “The Tonight Show” host has donated funds to support GupShup (a modern Indian spot on E. 18th Street that’s one of Fallon’s faves), Haitian eateries Grandchamps and Lakou Cafe in Brooklyn, the Nuyorican Poets Café, and Paris Blues Jazz Club in Harlem.

The spots have also been working to support their communities. For National Small Business Week last year, Fallon and “The Tonight Show” partnered with Grow with Google to support NYC small businesses. 

Page Six reported earlier this year that Jimmy Fallon left a $400 tip at Hamptons restaurant Kissaki after dinner with his wife.

In 2019, Fallon was spotted at GupShup with Anupam Kher, one of the stars of NBC’s “New Amsterdam,” enjoying naan and chutney over a small business dinner. He’d also been spotted at Flatiron Indian restaurant Junoon, heading into the kitchen to try baking an order of naan bread himself.

Fallon may soon have a lot more dough for naan. The NBC star recently listed his beloved Gramercy Park penthouse for $15 million. The nearly 5,000-square-foot spread is a combination of four apartments across three floors, with six bedrooms and five full bathrooms.

Fallon, 46, bought his first unit in the building — a one-bedroom bachelor pad — for $850,000 in 2002. The final result, which he shares with his movie-producer wife Nancy Juvonen, 53, was put together apartment-by-apartment over the course of more than a decade.

He is also known to be a regular of various local Gramercy Park eateries — from Danny Meyer’s high-end Gramercy Park Hotel spot, Maialino, to the more down-home Gramercy Kitchen diner.
