Puddy takes out Elaine to celebrate his promotion at a restau…Arby’s. As per their agreement to get back together that Jerry negotiates, Puddy agrees to take Elaine here no more than once a month. George later gets Arby’s for the cab home, to settle his massive hunger. There are no Arby’s locations in Manhattan, with the closest being in New Jersey (96 Meadow Rd., Rutherford) to the west, or Queens (69-16 Metropolitan Ave., Middle Village) to the east.
