    There are nostalgia restaurants for 1950s Americana, for 1960s rock-and-roll, and now ... New York is getting one for curmudgeonly 1980s sitcom grandmas.

    A close friend of the late actress Rue McClanahan is planning a "Golden Girls"-themed cafe in northern Manhattan, DNAInfo reported. 

    The Rue La Rue Cafe, planned for Broadway between 187th and 188th streets, recently went before Community Board 12 for its wine license. 

    Owner Michael LaRue will decorate the cafe with memorabilia from McClanahan's estate, DNAInfo reported. 

    The show, which ran on NBC for seven seasons, featured McClanahan as the feisty widow Blance Devereaux.
