Classic Little Italy restaurant will get a revival at Cross Street Market

June 13, 2022

Brendon Hudson got his start in the restaurant business in the dining room at Velleggia’s, his grandfather’s Little Italy restaurant. At 7 or 8 years old, he helped out as a host — “seating everyone at the wrong tables” — and eventually worked his way back to the kitchen.
