Actor Chazz Palminteri (Usual Suspects, A Bronx Tale, Modern Family), is getting into the restaurant game by opening an eponymous Italian eatery tonight in Midtown East, in partnership with the owners of Empire Steak House. The 140-seat space focuses on pasta dishes and Italian classics like mussels in white wine sauce, veal Marsala and traditional Italian desserts. A 250-bottle wine list focuses on Italian selections and the beverage list also offers local craft beers and cocktails made with Palminteri's own BIVI vodka (the first Sicilian vodka). Check out the menu below.
