Cake Boss: Italian Restaurant Next?

1/17/2011:

Update: 5 Marineview Plaza

Should have known this – but this was already mentioned in the Doomed Brooklyn Bread thread – that plans are already taking shape for a Valastro-related Italian eatery at 5 Marineview Plaza.

So that begs the question – what restaurant would “fit” uptown at Maxwell Place?

Buddy Valastro to expand into Italian Restaurant Biz?

Maxwell Place rumored to be next stop…

Hoboken411 heard that the empty corner restaurant space at Maxwell Place (11th Street) may soon be occupied by Cake Boss Buddy Valastro from Carlo’s Bakery and is slated to become an Italian Restaurant.

Haven’t confirmed validity of that rumor – however, if true:

  • Would yet another reality show be filmed there, and become so popular that lines will now form uptown? How would Maxwell Place residents feel about that? How would other area residents feel? (traffic, congestion, etc.)
  • What affect would that have on other Hoboken Italian Restaurants? Positive or negative?
  • Would you go? How do we know if Buddy can even cook a piece of chicken?

    Hey the Cake Boss crowd can go grab lunch and then walk around the corner to wait in line!

    Would be nice to have a “down home” italian place other than Leo’s.

    I am praying any plans to locate a restaurant at Maxwell Place will fall through. We don’t need any more garbage, traffic, parking issues or out-of towner weekend idiots uptown!

    The quality of Carlos’ pastries and cakes have been in a downward spiral since the show aired. Im sure if he decides to open an Italian Restaurant the food will be decent but people from all over will flock there and rave about it. Some people just dont know any better. For great Italian food try Augistino’s located on 11th & Washington St. Reservations a must. Better then Leo’s which isnt saying much.

      The problem with Hoboken residents, and I am totally guilty, is that I don’t go anywhere I can’t walk to in less than 15 minutes anywhere in town unless the weather beckons me for a long walk. Why is this? well We are a city! And more importantly, not everyone can afford 10 dollar round trip cab fare…and unless you are well off enough to have private parking, you know you aren’t gonna drive and then hunt for parking, at the restaurant and when you get home![quote comment=”202180″]The quality of Carlos’ pastries and cakes have been in a downward spiral since the show aired.

    Should be interesting to see what Italian concept comes out from Buddy as a restaurant. It’s a totally different animal than a bake shop

    1. Augistinos 2. Three A’s 3. Del Fino’s 4. Leo’s….As for rumors, the cake boss was to occupy the former Barnes & Noble location & wound up in JC.

    Why does everyone hate this guy? He is making a honest $$$ and he is making it while he can. Next week his show can be dropped and he’s back to making bread. Don’t begrudge him, tolerate him it will soon be over.

    • bornandrazedinhobo says:

      Aside from basing his entire popularity on fallacies about his past and outright lies about his upbringing and his capitalization claiming that he was from Hoboken; the guy is just a mediocre pastry chef at best that is being worshiped like an iconic bakery god. This guy is the Milli Vanilli of Cake, and unfortunately he is not going anywhere anytime soon! I wish he would be gone next week…but he has 3 tv shows, 2 books and just expanded his business two fold! ‘m all for making a buck and honest living but nothing about this guy is honest!

        Wasn’t it andy warhol who said some thing about everybody has 15 minutes of fame,it will soon be over so let it go, your chance might come someday. And as far as his upbringing so what if he exaggerated and a lot of that might might be from the producers. I knew his father and he was a nice guy and died too young.[quote comment=”202225″]Aside from basing his entire popularity on fallacies about his past and outright lies about his upbringing and his capitalization claiming that he was from Hoboken; the guy is just a mediocre pastry chef at best that is being worshiped like an iconic bakery god.

      von kaiser frazer..what i forgot you have to learn..of course your the grammer grouch.
      Its not an argument more than trading barbs with an elitist who thinks she is entitled to so much in life..correcting term papers,correcting dopes like me in grammer,makes you what you are…As far as Buddy Jr goes Bless him and his dad who built the empire starting next door to fiories,you know the other italian store that don’t know nutten.How jealous can someone such as you be when you try to empress the forum of your yuppie intellect?This is why your disliked by the bnr.spoon fed milk fed and a whiz in grammer. You love this country and i bet you served in the military.Buddy Sr was learning a dollar a day from a great baker in the late 50’s..Not time to hang with his pals and came here with holes in his shoes in the mid 50’s If you insulted him when he hit you wake up your cloths would be out of style..The agreement was to buy from carlos he would keep the name,,His name is valastero..I must admit not that the prices are too high and to much sugar in the cakes…Other than that jr could change you name ..dont even think about it..bless him rather than mock him. :)
