Shocker: T.G.I. Friday’s Lands in Union Square


The Riese Organization has announced that it has taken over the long vacant Zen Palate space at 34 Union Square East, and tentative plans call for a Tim Hortons and the scary part a T.G.I. Fridays. Tentative though those plans may be, it sounds likely that Riese will add another T.G.I. Fridays to those it already operates at Broadway and 46th Street and at 604 Fifth Avenue, at 48th Street. We are pleased to be a part of the exciting resurgence of Union Square and to introduce T.G.I. Fridays and Tims to this great neighborhood, Dennis Riese says in the press release. Lets hope resurgence doesnt end up meaning the coming of Pret A Manger, T.G.I. Fridays, and other chains. Send rhubarb reinforcements, Greenmarket this is going to get ugly.
