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
