Brooklyn has waited far too long for a French Dip Combo, but soon enough the borough's first Arby's will be opening and putting an end to its curly fry-less days. And boy oh boy, is it the fanciest Arby's you ever did see.
Opening in the historic land-marked Gage and Tollner space on the Fulton Mall, 25-year-old Arby's franchise guy Ray Chera tells the Daily News that the "jaw-droppingly beautiful" space is one of 40 Arby's he plans to open in the city over the next 10 years. So we have that going for us. He also notes, "We're making a couple of minor additions to the interior, but we took great pains to leave the space exactly as it is." The Landmarks Conservancy says they'll be keeping a watching eye on the roast beef dealer, who have already adorned the facade of the building with a big ol' Arby's sign.
At least one resident is planning a boycott, saying, "It's a little soulless. I don't care if it looks like Trump Plaza; I'm not going to Arby's."
