Arby's to move into Gage & Tollner space

According to today's Daily News, a Brooklyn franchisee plans to open 41 Arby's restaurants in NYC in the next ten years has filed an application with the Landmarks Preservation Commission to convert the G&T space into one of them. Quoting the Daily News: "We’re keeping everything in place, and anything we move in will be nonpermanent and easy to move out.....It will probably be the most beautiful Arby’s ever.”

How the mighty have fallen

  1. Now when I say "It feels like an Arby's night " in jest I could actually "eat" my words. Roastburgers (or whatever they're called) for all!

    (This is incredibly sad news; Amy Ruth's would have been perfect, I was really excited about that prospect.)

      1. this is just so, so wrong :-(

        1. Whatever happened to Amy Ruth's plans to move into the space?

            Probably the tanking economy :-{

            1. So far no sign of Arby's, but worse, if you can believe it. The big window has a huge sign for a nail salon which apparently has taken over G&T's party space on the second floor (with signs in all four second floor windows. A huge nail salon banner covers portico over the entrance. With the party space gone, this does not bode well for a cent restaurant to come downstairs, even if Arby's fails.
