Buddy Valastro’s love of Las Vegas just got sweeter with another restaurant opening on Monday, April 25. The star of the hit TLC series Cake Boss will open The Boss Café by Buddy Valastro at The LINQ Hotel + Experience.
The Boss Café will join la famiglia of Buddy V’s Ristorante, Carlo’s Bakery, PizzaCake and Jersey Eats with casual, to-go dining capturing the savory and sweet side of the famed New Jersey chef and restaurateur. Inspired by all the neighborhood delis and markets in New Jersey and New York the Valastro and his family grew up with, The Boss Café features a variety of fresh baked breads, Italian sandwiches, bakery-style pizza, a house-made fresh mozzarella bar, and a variety of sweets and pastries.
At The Boss Café, it’s all about the Mozz (pronounced Mutz!, hand gesture optional). The highlight of the restaurant is the Mozz Bar, where guests can grab their favorite fresh mozzarella creation served with warm rustic bread and their choice of topping from basil pesto, roasted peppers, spicy peppers, tomato-olive relish or tomato, fresh basil and aged balsamic. Created by Valastro’s father in-law and made fresh daily, the Mozz is on full display not only as a key ingredient on sandwiches and other menu items, but will be made in an open kitchen by The Boss Café’s ‘Mutz Masters.’
The menu at The Boss Café will offer casual Italian-American fare conceived by Valastro himself along with Corporate Executive Chef, Bryan Forgione. Forgione recently joined Valastro on the restaurant group side, coming from Buddy V’s Ristorante where he ran the kitchen since opening in 2013. The impressive menu will also feature different counters including House Salads including Pop’s Panzanella or the Hoboken Chop; the Sandwich Counter with classics like the Hoboken Havana, Jersey Boy, Ma’s Chicken Milanese or Lisa’s Caprese served on fresh Jersey Focaccia; and Nonna Style Pizza Squares featuring the “bakery pizza” Buddy’s family pioneered in their famous bakery – a thicker, yet light and fluffy, focaccia crust with a variety of options including Margherita, Italiano, and Chicken Parm. Staying tried and true to Buddy’s baking roots.
The Boss Café will also boast an impressive dessert selection and all-time favorites made famous by Carlo’s Bakery such as the world-famous Lobster Tail Pastry, Tiramisu, Cheesecake, Cannoli, assorted pastries and fresh-baked cookies.

With three hours of free parking for locals and convenient for locals parking in the back Harrah’s or The LINQ’s self-parking garages, The Boss Café is the perfect option for a quick lunch on the Strip or grabbing dinner to go for the family.
