Chazz Palminteri visits Chazz Tonight

Actor Chazz Palminteri will be visiting his namesake restaurant, Chazz: A Bronx Original, this evening while he's in Baltimore.

Co-owner/chef Sergio Vitale invited Facebook followers (and anyone else, I'm sure) to stop by the restaurant for dinner and have photos taken with the actor. As Sergio said, "Chazz loves his fans."

I found Chazz to be a gracious man when I interviewed him before the Harbor East restaurant opened in 2011. At the time, he explained his interest in owning a restaurant.

"It's a dream I've always had," said Chazz, pictured, sitting in his favorite booth at the restaurant. "I always wanted to open a restaurant, and I found the right people with Alessandro [Vitale] and Sergio."
