The hottest joint on the strip right now is Cake Boss Buddy Valastro's first foray into the restaurant world, the newly opened Buddy V's at the Venetian. Eater Vegas has already published an exclusive interview with the man himself, presented an inside pictorial tour and spied on the star attendees at the grand opening. Now it's time to reveal the menu, styled after the home cooking Valastro prepares for his own family.

An abbreviated lunch menu still hits all the high notes, and shaves a few dollars from a number of dishes. Dinner choices naturally include his "Sunday Gravy."
