The owner of Barberian's Steak House told Narcity Fellow Travelers was filming at the restaurant on October 24 and that the cast and crew were "lovely."
"They wanted a 50's style classic traditional steak house," said the owner. "They were very gracious to everybody in the neighbourhood. They used many businesses in the neighbourhood, and they helped out our little local economy."
Narcity's Mira Nabulsi captured footage of the set on Elm Street, where 1950s-style cars and production members filled the street.
Fellow Travelers is an upcoming political period romance series that follows romantic leads Bailey as Tim Laughlin and Matt Bomer as Hawkins Fuller, according to Variety.
The outlet reports the two men strike up an epic romance as "subversives and sexual deviants" are being targeted by Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn and continue to run into each other over four decades through historical events like the Vietnam War protests in the 1960s and the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.
