Sands Bethlehem, a Bethlehem, Pa., casino and entertainment destination, announced that it will add another famous name to its line-up of dining options. Slated to open in spring 2016, Buddy Valastro's "Buddy V's" will serve Italian-American classics in the space which formerly housed St. James Gate.

"At Sands Bethlehem, we are committed to providing a variety of exciting dining experiences for our guests, making this resort an unmatched destination for customers in the northeast," said Mark Juliano, President, Sands Bethlehem. "With the addition of Buddy V's, we are proud to add another successful, award-winning restaurant to our offerings."

Building on the success of the original Buddy V's, located at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, also a Las Vegas Sands Corp. property, the Pennsylvania location will similarly serve Valastro's family favorites like Sunday Gravy, Steak Pizzaiola and Linguine and Clams with Lobster, all recipes passed down from his mother, grandmother and aunts. Known best as the star of the hit TLC series "Cake Boss," renowned baker and chef Valastro promises there will also be an impressive dessert selection, including zeppole, cannoli and the world famous lobster tail pastry.

"My family is known for its sweet treats, but I am excited to share what is really at the heart of any Italian family – Italian food," said Valastro. "I am honored Sands Bethlehem has invited me to stand beside other impressive chefs. I am happy to be getting back closer to where it all began and sharing these meals with our friends in the northeast."
