Are you there, NYC Restaurant God? It's us, Gothamist. What is this news of T.G.I. Fridays moving to Gage & Tollner's locations? The Times picks up on a story from The Brooklyn Paper, and it's really a freaky outrage. The Times gets a quote from "cautiously" optimistic Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz: "People's tastes change. I can go through a whole litany of wonderful, wonderful restaurants that Brooklyn used to be blessed with that we no longer have." Yeah, but that's different from T.G.I. Friday's brand of Jack Daniels' Grill fare encroaching upon Gage & Tollner's a landmark building.
