Pasta by Hudson

pasta by hudsonRestaurateur Brandon Fay seeks an investor for Pasta by Hudson, his casual pasta restaurant concept, in Shark Tank episode 1116. Fay is no stranger to television – he has his own Sunday cooking show on the local New York City CBS affiliate. He’s no stranger to the restaurant business either – he was managing director of The Trattoria Dell’Arte, one of NYC’s most successful Italian restaurants, for nearly 18 years.

Fay travels frequently to Italy to stay up to date on the latest trends in Italian cuisine, but he knows pasta is a staple EVERYONE likes. Pasta by Hudson is named for Fay’s now three year old daughter with “a personality as big as New York City.” Everything is made fresh daily and patrons can even buy fresh, uncooked pasta by the pound.

The menu a la carte and fairly simple. Patrons pick one of six pasta shapes, one of six  sauces and one of the 13 add-ins and that’s it. There are also five pre-selected meals that are “Hudson’s Faves.” The menu is by no means extensive by design. The concept is to provide hearty, fresh, Italian “slow-cooked” food quickly.

Fay has had a lot of success at his one location in one of the busiest foot traffic spots in New York City. He likely wants to expand the concept to other locations and sell his uncooked pasta in retail locations. Several of the Sharks could provide value to his business, will one of them want to bite on this italian food concept?
