Porowski is opening a "fast-casual reboot" in the West Village.

Before the premiere of Queer Eye's second season, Antoni Porowski announced that he was planning to open a restaurant in New York City. "I'm all about, like, cheese and pork belly and decadence, and as a result of the increased vanity of being on camera all the time and working out and eating healthy, I'm developing a fast-casual food concept restaurant that I'm gonna be opening here in New York," he said during a panel discussion at the 92nd Street Y this June. At the time, Porowski claimed he "supposed to talk about it," but now the word it out.

According to Eater, Porowski is opening a "fast-casual reboot" of iconic West Village diner Village Den. The Queer Eye star plans to rebirth the diner (which closed this May after 36 years) as an "all-day, counter service spot" aimed at "a wholesome yet fulfilling lifestyle." The projected opening date for Porowski's eatery is September. The most pressing question: how many avocado dishes will the menu feature?
