I watch Golden Girls pretty much every day (and I’m proud of that!) So I’m pretty excited to hear that a Golden Girls-themed restaurant is opening in New York City.
A friend of Rue McClanahan inherited a lot of her memorabilia, and got the idea to put it to use in this Washington Heights restaurant.
“She was my best friend,” LaRue said during a recent Community Board 12 licensing committee meeting, adding that he’s already lined up fellow “Golden Girls” actress Betty White, who played Rose Nylund, to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony.
He’ll also create a menu featuring soups, wraps, salads, desserts, baked treats and wine — and, of course, cheesecake.
The restaurant is set to open sometime in September, but I haven’t been able to find many details yet.
Here’s a shot where the cafe will be:
I can’t wait!
