Cake Boss Buddy Valastro wanted his first restaurant to be reminiscent of a Sunday dinner at his grandmother's house. His Buddy V's Ristorante, which opened Monday at the Palazzo, features a design by Celano Design Studio with an entrance made of metal and glass, inspired by the Lackawanna train station in Hoboken near his grandmother's home. Rustic wood flooring, distressed brick and an eclectic mix of furniture and light fixtures in the entrance and bar area recall an Italian-American living room. Inside find photographs of the Valastro family, light fixtures made of repurposed whisks and water jugs and hanging panels made of vintage rolling pins. Take a look inside.
