Actor Chazz Palminteri in partnership with the owners of Empire Steak House opened Chazz Palminteri Italian Restaurant in midtown Manhattan. A year later, he brought his play-turned-movie, A Bronx Tale to Broadway and has since decided to bring his namesake restaurant to the 'bright white way' too! Our location at the Cambria Hotel (46th Street) allows theater goers to pair a showing of A Bronx Tale with a 'taste of the story,' a great lunch, dinner and brunch spot with access to almost every subway line and an excellent respite from the hustle and bustle of 46th Street. The new and improved location is not only accessible for New Yorkers and better suited for Chazz's connection to the entertainment
