Mystery Solved

I wasn’t expecting Arby’s as the mystery chain taking over the Gage & Tollner spot because it’s not as if we haven’t experienced Arby’s in the city (two in Queens and one now closed in the Manhattan Mall).

I used to eat a Beef ‘n Cheddar and Jamocha shake for lunch practically every day as a high school freshman so I’ve been swayed the allure of Arby’s (I don’t think I’ve foot in one in over 15 years, though).

I would just be concerned about their move into a landmarked building. In 2005 Arby’s razed Niederstein’s, Queens’ oldest restaurant, and built right on top of the spot.

    That “Horsey Sauce” scares me… if I had a job where I’d have to say, “Would you like Horsey Sauce with that?” I think I would probably kill myself. Actually, as layoffs are coming our way next week, this may come to fruition… I’d better put Suicide Hotline on speed dial…
