Picture it: Washington Heights, 2016. You're in your silkiest caftan, gabbing with your three best friends over late-night cheesecake. Whether you're a Blanche, a Dorothy or a Sophia, you can channel your favorite foursome at a Golden Girls–themed café set to open in Washington Heights in early September, reports DNAinfo

The Ru La Rue Café will be located on 4396 Broadway and is the brainchild of Michael J. LaRue, best friend to the late, great Rue McClanahan, who won an Emmy for her turn as sassy Blanche on the NBC hit. The restaurant will reportedly be decorated with memorabilia and personal belongings from McClanahan's own collection, which LaRue inherited when the actress passed in 2010, and McClanahan's costar, the legendary Betty "Rose Nylund" White herself, is tapped to attend the café's ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

Operating weekdays from 6am to 10pm and weekends from 6am to 11pm, the kitchen will serve soups, salads, wraps and dessert—and that best include some gab-worthy cheesecake.
