“Healthier comfort food will be the focus at Queer Eye Antoni Porowski’s upcoming fast-casual restaurant in the West Village. The Netflix show’s food expert is jumping off the screen to prove to the world that he can actually cook, at his reboot of 36-year-old diner Village Den.”

“Dishes like turkey-stuffed cabbage rolls with cauliflower rice or macadamia-crusted fish sticks with maple parsnip mash are on the menu here, the Times reports, food that will appeal to the “30s health and fitness” crowd by largely following the low-carb ketosis diet that Porowski occasionally is on.”

“What won’t be a big part of the menu is avocado, the trendy fruit that got Porowski a reputation where people questioned if he could actually cook.”
