Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski Brings Back the TV Dinner

“You just missed Antoni,” restaurateur Eric Marx tells me, as I walk into the Village Den on a Sunday afternoon. “He was here 20 minutes ago.”

I sigh with relief. My hair’s a mess, and I regret my outfit choice (an acrylic sweater) on this uncharacteristically hot fall day. So I’m okay that I’ve just missed him because—at the risk of sounding vain—the day I meet Antoni Porowski, Netflix’s Queer Eye food and wine expert, I want to look cute.
