Tori Spelling Sues Benihana After Suffering Third-Degree Burns From Grill


Jessica Roy

Tori Spelling wants to make Benihana pay.

According to The Wrap, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star filed suit against hibachi restaurant Benihana this week alleging negligence. She says in April, she slipped and burned herself on the grill at the Encino location, and as a result, had to be hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns.

She is seeking unspecified damages over the amount of $25,000 for lost wages, medical expenses, general damage, and "loss of earning capacity."

The scoop on your favorite returning fall shows

For those who have never visited a hibachi restaurant before, a primer: You and your group sit around a large, open flat-top grill. Part of the fun is watching the chef do tricks while he or she makes your food.
