A restaurant featured on the newest season of Queer Eye has opened its doors in Philadelphia's Italian Market, according to Eater Philly.
Marcos Tlacopilco, who was a hero on the latest season, opened up his restaurant Alma del Mar this week. The restaurant is named after his wife and was a big part of his episode on season five of the show. During the episode, he worked with interior designer Bobby Berk to bring the restaurant alive, complete with bright walls and an inspirational quote from Tlacopilco's grandfather lighting up the back wall: "a todo lo que hagas ponle corazón" which generally means "put your heart into everything you do."
Since the filming, a mural of the Fab Five—Bobby, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France, and Karamo Brown—has also been painted on an interior wall, and they have made a few changes to the decor, according to a previous Eater story.
The restaurant serves up a blend of "American breakfast and brunch standards with Mexican" fare like tofu scramble, bacon-banana French toast, and tres leches pain perdu. Tlacopilco also works selling fish near the restaurant, so the menu is full of delicious seafood dishes, including a crab soup that he made with Antoni during the filming of the show. Anyone who watched the episode will definitely be ordering that one because it looked AMAZING.
In case you live in Philly or are able to swing by soon, the restaurant is now open seven days a week for outdoor seating and take-out from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
