Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Las Vegas is about to get a taste of New Jersey’s other “boss” as Buddy Valastro, the star of the hit TLC series Cake Boss, opens his first restaurant this fall. Partnering with veteran restaurateurs Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla, Buddy V’s will be located in The Venetian® Las Vegas and is inspired by Valastro’s family gatherings and the beloved recipes passed down by his mother, grandmother, and aunts.
Buddy V’s is the first restaurant venture for the internationally renowned baker known for his ebullient personality and intricate custom cakes. “People always just think of me as a baker, but beyond the bakery, food has always been at the center of my family’s life,” says Valastro.
A partnership with Blau and Canteenwalla, hospitality visionaries widely credited at the center of Las Vegas’ transformation into the world-class culinary destination it is today, lends the creative and operational support system needed to ensure Buddy V’s is the talk of the town. “We’ve been friends with and fans of Buddy for a long time so we are excited to be partnering with him to help bring his vision to life,” says Blau.
The menu at Buddy V’s will offer new twists on Italian-American classics, as well as Valastro family favorites like Sunday Gravy, Steak Pizzaiola and Lisa’s Linguine and Clams with Lobster. Staying true to Buddy’s baking roots, Buddy V’s will also boast an impressive dessert selection of timeless treats such as Zeppole, Cannoli, and the world famous Lobster Tail Pastry.
Housed within the luxurious Venetian Las Vegas and conveniently located adjacent to Barney’s New York, Buddy V’s will occupy 11,000 square feet and offer commanding Strip views in a beautiful room designed by New York based firm, Celano Design.
The Venetian and The Palazzo resort complex is known as a culinary capital of Las Vegas, featuring the nation's largest collection of fine-dining restaurants under one roof. “We are thrilled to welcome Buddy as the newest renowned chef to call The Venetian and The Palazzo home," said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo, and Sands Expo. "The vision of Buddy and his team is to create a restaurant that will bring many of us back to an Italian Sunday dinner with the family. What a perfect fit for The Venetian and The Palazzo!"
