NEW YORK - The Golden Girls fans can say "thank you for being a friend" and get their fix of the beloved sitcom in a pop-up restaurant coming to the Seaport District in Lower Manhattan.
The experience opens Dec. 7 and it's already accepting reservations. If the concept sounds familiar, it was originally announced to open last month on E. 54th St. in Midtown. It is unclear why the restaurant location was moved.
The Golden Girls Kitchen promises a fully immersive dining experience inspired by the characters' favorite iconic 1980s Miami hangouts.

Tickets start at $40 for a 90-minute reservation, a choice of a main course, and a slice of cheesecake. There will be additional sides and beverages available for purchase, and an array of dessert choices.
The space will feature the Rusty Anchor Bar with specialty cocktails and mocktails centered around the NBC series.
Bucket Listers, the organizers behind the pop-up, say there are photo-ops inside the restaurant like 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.
The restaurant was previously in Beverly Hills and was open from July 30, 2022 until Nov. 6, 2022. It plans stops in San Francisco, Miami, and Chicago.
