The classic sitcom starred Betty White, Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty as four older women who share a home in Florida. As of February 13th, all seven seasons of the comedy are available to stream on Hulu.
Co-owned by Rue McClanahan’s son, Mark Bish, and friend Michael J. LaRue, the new Manhattan-based restaurant is named The Rue La Rue Café. Its decoration, complete with tropical plant wallpaper, is inspired by the Florida home shared by the Golden Girls characters. The restaurant also includes memorabilia from the show, including the Emmy Award McClanahan won for the show in 1987.
Take a look at The Rue La Rue Café below:
A long-awaited Golden Girls cafe has now soft-opened in Washington Heights, boasting themed treats, a hefty collection of memorabilia, and this wonderful wallpaper. We stopped by to check out the goods, which include, among other things, "Rose's Proposal Scones" and Rue McClanahan's 1987 Emmy award. More on Gothamist.com; link in profile. (📷: @scottheins)
