The story, by now legend, of how Academy Award-winning actor Chazz Palminteri came to open a restaurant in Baltimore's splashy Harbor East neighborhood, climaxed this summer with an opening that silenced most of the project's critics. The swagger is leavened by wit, and the food at Chazz is top-notch. The veal meatballs could headline a Broadway show.--Richard Gorelick Venue address: 1415 Aliceanna St.
