‘Golden Girls’ Pop-Up Restaurant Now Open in New York City
If you have a trip to New York City for the holidays on your plans, you're surely going to check out the Rockefeller Christmas tree and maybe visit Macy's department store or possibly even catch a Christmas Spectacular performance by the Rockettes.
Let me add one more possible stop on your tour of The Big Apple -- a visit to The Golden Girls Kitchen.
Yep, there is a new pop-up restaurant that brings to life the legendary 1980s sitcom "The Golden Girls," and it's open for a few weeks in Manhattan.
Golden Girls Kitchen is open Wednesdays through Sundays. (Oh, there's even a drag brunch on Sundays.) It's located at the Seaport, NYC: 19 Fulton St, New York, NY 10038.
You must make a reservation and tickets start at $40.
What does your ticket include?
Each ticket includes a 90-minute reservation as well as your choice of a Golden Main + slice of cheesecake. There are dishes like "Sophia's Lasagna Al Forno" and "The Lanai (A 'Miami Style' Cuban Sandwich)."
The drinks are themed after the show's characters as well: The Dorothy, Devereaux's Delight, The Mel Bushman, Big Daddy, and Nylund Negroni, just to name a few.
You can also purchase additional sides, desserts, beverages, and exclusive The Golden Girls Kitchen merchandise to add on arrival.
What does The Golden Girls Kitchen look like?
The custom, detailed dining experience lets you immerse yourself in rooms that feel like you're in the Girls' Miami home plus some of their iconic Miami joints, like the Rusty Anchor Bar or the dreaded Shady Pines Retirement Home.
There are great photo-ops in the restaurant: you can snap a photo in Blanche's Boudoir, complete with shag carpet and a palm print bedspread, or pretend to chat with the ladies through the girls' yellow kitchen phone.
Here are a few pictures of the pop-up restaurant as posted on their official Facebook page.
The Golden Girls Kitchen will run through the end of February in New York City, but if you can't make it, don't worry. The proprietors plan to open in Miami, San Francisco, and Chicago in Spring 2023.
