Oscar nominated actor, writer, playwright, and director Chazz Palminteri is taking his artistic passion in another direction, to the table. Known for his A Bronx Tale one man show on Broadway, later adapted to the movies, Palminteri, a storyteller at heart, is now expressing his memories of Bronx with his restaurant, Chazz: A Bronx Original.
Opening a restaurant has been a dream of his for a great deal of time. The actor Robert DeNiro, a very successful restaurateur and friend to Chazz, advised him to look for trustworthy associates, people who are dedicated and a quality product. In the interview he quipped, “At times I would find two out of the three prerequisites that DeNiro suggested but never all three.”
