“Everything I needed to know about friendship, I learned from the Golden Girls”
One of the best tv sitcoms from the past. The Golden Girls now have a café dedicated to them in the city! Take a pal and confidant over to the new “Golden Girls” themed eatery, La Rue Cafe, now open for breakfast and lunch in Washington Heights.
The cafe will make you reminisce the beloved program, which aired from 1985 to 1992, with retro palm tree wallpaper reminiscent of Blanche’s fancy bedroom, and photos from the show.
The restaurant wouldn’t be a Golden Girl treat without the girls’ favorite dessert – Cheesecake. On the menu, you will find Dorothy’s salty caramel cheesecake, and a coconut Betty White cake, dedicated to Rose Nylund.
Owner Michael J. LaRue was a pal and a confidant with the late Rue McClanahan, who portrayed the lusty Southern belle Blanche Devereaux, and has decorated the restaurant with memorabilia he inherited from the show.
Opened from 7:30-3:30pm for breakfast and lunch for now, but will soon offer Dinner service.
Thank someone for being a friend and bring them over for a good meal and a trip down memory lane !
