Chazz Palminteri to expand pizza restaurant chain to Las Vegas

The actor and two partners opened Chazz: A Bronx Original in the upscale Harbor East neighbourhood last year (11) and it has quickly become a darling of the food critics.

So the movie star is now hoping to open a second restaurant in Sin City.

He tells, “I started the restaurant Chazz with two partners in Baltimore. I felt funny naming it that but my partners wanted me to name it that so I said OK.

“Esquire Magazine called it one of the top pizzas in the United States. We have a coal fire oven and everything is great there. It’s a Bronx theme because I wanted to bring back food from the old times. We’re looking at another Chazz restaurant in Las Vegas now.”
