'The Golden Girls' pop-up restaurant is opening in American cities

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Bring your pal or your confidant, throw a party and invite “everyone you know” to the pop-up restaurant experience that is called The Golden Girls Kitchen.

The eatery is inspired by the beloved American sitcom, “The Golden Girls,” which first aired on NBC in 1985.

That TV show starred Bea Arthur (Dorothy), Betty White (Rose), Rue McClanahan (Blanche) and Estelle Getty (Sophia) — four hilarious women who shared a home in Miami, Florida.

Starting in Beverly Hills in honor of “National Golden Girls Day,” the classic TV-inspired pop-up restaurant features menu items such as “Sophia’s Lasagna,” lots of cheesecake and photo-op moments — which Fox News Digital previewed.

“When I first got into the pop culture game (Saved by the Max, Good Burger, The Peach Pit), I always knew we had to bring ‘The Golden Girls’ to life at some point,” Derek Berry, director of experiences with Bucket Listers, told Fox News Digital.

“I’m always drawn to concepts that tell not just a strong visual story, but ones where the food itself is organically woven into the experience,” Berry added.

“Food is such a love language for ‘The Golden Girls’ characters, it was a no-brainer for us to bring this to life and give fans a taste of these foods in real life,” he said.

Tickets range from $39 to $79 per person, pending dining hours. 

Each guest receives a choice of entree and cheesecake — thanks to menu creator and executive chef Royce Burke of Los Angeles-based restaurants Secret Lasagna and Dino’s Famous Chicken.

“This show means so much to so many people,” he continued. 

“There was no way we’d allow ourselves to mess this up for people. We’ve taken so much love and care with the details throughout the entire experience. Our goal is for every fan to leave with a full belly and a full heart,” he also said.
