Chazz: A Bronx Original, the brainchild of actor Chazz Palminteri and Aldo’s Ristorante’s Sergio Vitale and Alessandro Vitale, is opening June 10.
The Italian American cuisine restaurant will open in Harbor East at 1415 Aliceanna St. The restaurant is designed by Rita St. Clair Associates Inc. and will revisit scenes from Palminteri’s “A Bronx Tale,” including Arthur Avenue — the main bar and gathering place from the 1993 film.
Palminteri wrote the screenplay for “A Bronx Tale,” which was based off of a one-man show also written by and performed by him.
Diners will be able to sit at the “pizza altar” to watch their meals prepared and baked to order in a coal oven. The menu includes everything from antipasti to piccoli piatti, and will be open for dinner from 5 p.m. to midnight seven days a week. The restaurant can seat up to 165 guests.
Lunch, late-night dining, take-out and curbside service is expected to be offered in upcoming months.
This may sound stupid, but is the restaurant in New York?
If so I will be in New York during the first week of June and would like to stop in and try it.
