The golden girls fans can thank their friends with a meal even the girls of Shady Pines would approve of at LA’s new pop-up restaurant and bar, The kitchen of the golden girls.
Heading to Beverly Hills in July, the immersive pop-up experience will feature a Daddy’s Girls-themed menu, 1980s Miami setting and recreations of iconic sets from the series. Tickets sell for $50 each and include a restaurant reservation, entrée, and dessert. Fans of the series can take photos at the iconic kitchen table or the veranda, shop for themed goods, and enjoy being served by Shady Pines staff. There will also be a host of programs such as panels and collaborations with local chefs.
Some of the menu’s themed dishes include Sophia’s Lasagna (available in meat and vegan options), Blanche’s Georgian-style cookies, and The Dorothy: A Miami Style Sandwich. To wash it down, diners can choose from themed drinks like Arthur tea and Rose on Rosé. Additional menu items will be available, including cheesecake for dessert and other a la carte options. Those who cannot make it to the restaurant can even have it delivered.
The golden girls is beloved for its heartwarming and hilarious depiction of four friends living together at The Shady Pines retirement home in Miami. The comedy ran from 1985 to 1992 and starred Bea Arthur as Dorothy, Rue McClanahan as Blanche, Betty White as Rose, and Estelle Getty as Dorothy’s mother Sophia. .
Tickets are not yet on sale, but interested fans can sign up to join the waiting list.
