The collection of restaurants in the Harbor East area has grown again, with the opening of Chazz: A Bronx Original. Actor Chazz Palminteri has partnered with local restaurateurs Sergio and Alessandro Vitale of Aldo’s to open the vast new restaurant that features a classic Italian-American menu and “Bronx-style” pizza. That pizza is handmade in an open exhibition kitchen area and baked in coal-fired ovens (in all of 90 seconds!). Other menu items include various types of salumi, bruschetta and formaggi, grilled Caesar salad, veal meatballs with sausage and tomato sauce, pork osso bucco and the restaurant’s signature 20-layer lasagne. The interiors pay tribute to Palminteri’s Bronx childhood, including areas that mimic a subway station and an elevated train platform. The bar area boasts hand-crafted specialty cocktails, an extensive wine list and a snug lounge area perfect for nibbling and private tete-a-tetes. Open daily for dinner starting at 5 p.m. 1415 Aliceanna St., 410-522-5511
