If you are a fan of the award-winning show The Golden Girls, you need to check out The Golden Girls Kitchen pop-up. The iconic restaurant opens July 30 in the heart of Beverly Hills and pays homage to some of the show's most iconic moments and lets die-hard fans fully immerse themselves in the world of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia.
The masterminds behind The Golden Girls Kitchen are the Bucket Listers, an online community sharing the best bucket list-worthy events in the nation, and Derek Berry, the brains behind similar restaurant pop-ups like Good Burger and Saved By the Max. Fans should be more than ecstatic to welcome this exciting collaboration with open arms.
Just in time for National Golden Girls Day, the restaurant transports fans to 1980s Miami, allowing fans to get lost in the world of The Golden Girls. It comes as no surprise that the mouthwatering menu created by executive chef Royce Burke (Secret Lasagna, Dino's Famous Chicken) specializes in desserts. Most importantly, there will be a cheesecake in partnership with East Side Cheesecakes.
Besides desserts, the menu offers nostalgic entrees, like Sophias’s Lasagna Al Forno, the Bacon Lettuce Potato Sandwich (Say It Fast), The Lanai: A “Miami style” Cuban Sandwich and so many more delicious dishes served by your Shady Pines waiter.
All tickets include a guaranteed window of time to dine, a reserved seat and a choice of an entree and dessert. Once fans finish enjoying their meal, they can explore the pop-up filled with memorable photo-op moments. Explore the iconic kitchen table, look at the view from the lanai, take a picture in front of the palm print, sneak a peek inside Blanche’s bedroom and stop by the store featuring new Golden Girls merchandise.
“Bringing Golden Girls to life has always been a dream of mine, the demand has far surpassed our wildest dreams. Our team is confident that both die-hard fans of the show and first-timers alike will leave with a deeper appreciation for the show’s lasting legacy” says Berry, the Bucket Listers director of experiences
What's more, The Golden Girls Kitchen will embark on a four-city tour throughout the next year with stops in New York, Miami, San Francisco and Chicago. This exciting addition will share the highly-sought-after dining experience with fans from all over the country. The waitlist is now open.
You have to check out this pop-up because, as Sophia’s motto says, “Today could be the last day of your life.” For more information about The Golden Girls Kitchen or to join the waitlist to snag tickets, visit the Bucket Listers website.
