If Salt Bae could do it, why not Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski?

Food & Wine reported on Wednesday that Porowski—who, frankly, none of us are sure can cook but is adorable—announced during an event at the 92nd Street Y on Tuesday that he’s developing a fast-casual restaurant “concept” in New York City, where he resides. Porowski was coy at first, saying he’s “not supposed to talk about it,” but then, fuck it, he dived right in:

“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.”


I love it. I want to eat at a restaurant whose theme is “positivity” and whose core ingredient is “cheese” (I hope that’s what this description connotes, I honestly don’t really understand what he’s talking about). I mean, I’m not expecting miracles since Bobby won’t be there to build and furnish the joint, but that’s ok because it just so happens that Porowski standing in a vacant lot in Soho cooking pork belly on a hot plate is my ideal restaurant. I’m just a low-key kind of gal!!!
