The first T.G.I. Friday’s restaurant opened their doors in 1965 in New York City at the corner of First Avenue and 63rd Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. This location quickly became THE meeting place for single adults, totaling $1 million in revenues its first year. For all you movie buff’s, this location was the back drop for the filming of COCKTAIL, starring Tom Cruise.

T.G.I.Friday’s Restaurant became famous for its wide variety of food items and selection of drinks even though the first menu was a chalkboard.

Now, almost 50 years later, T.G.I.Friday’s has over 500 locations worldwide and is one of the leading restaurant brands.

Still America’s favorite restaurant, you can visit any one of the 10 NYC T.G.I.Friday’s and enjoy a wide variety of new and classic menu dishes such as Pot Stickers, Jack Daniel’s Ribs and Vanilla Bean Cheesecake. In addition to the already exciting menu, the NYC T.G.I.Friday’s offer the best Happy Hours in town. With discounted appetizers and drinks you’re a guaranteed a GREAT time.
