Since its 2011 opening, Chazz Palminteri’s eponymous restaurant has become a magnet for athletes and actors. Michael Phelps is known to down pizza like fish food there. Ray Lewis and Joe Flacco have shown up on separate occasions, and Derek Jeter seems to stop in every time the Yankees are in town to play the Orioles. Actor Josh Charles and Palminteri’s A Bronx Tale co-star Robert DeNiro have been seen with Chazz on the frequent nights the actor-restaurateur plays host to star-struck guests, to whom he may offer free desserts and photo-ops. Bring your appetite, your smartphone, and a Sharpie.
