Looking for a place to just sit back and shoot the breeze while scooping mounds of cheesecake into your mouth? Look no further! Michael J.La Rue has finally opened up his Golden Girls themed cafe Rue La Rue in Washington Heights. According to Gothamist, the restaurant will start off serving breakfast and lunch and once adjusted, will move onto to dinner service as well.
LaRue has inherited memorabilia from the late Rue McClanahan and will be displaying it at the cafe for fans."I have a whole warehouse going to keep rotating memorabilia and costumes, forever," LaRue told Gothamist. Be sure to plan ahead, the restaurant's weekend traffic was heavy with patrons sampling recipes from McClanahan's personal collection as well as dishes Golden Girls fans may remember from the show (cheesecake!) and can only expect to get busier as news spreads.
