Actor Chazz Palminteri performed his one-man show, "A Bronx Tale," based on the 1993 film of the same name (which was, itself, based on the very same original one-man show), in Baltimore on Sunday ( "The 18 sides of Chazz Palminteri," Nov. 15). Its chief selling point, for most people, is the sense of "nostalgia" it seems to awaken, particularly among Italian Americans who grew up in mostly Italian neighborhoods in our nation's cities (e.g., Baltimore's Little Italy). As our Roman ancestors would have said, however, caveat emptor (let the buyer beware)

Eighteen characters, but only one actor. That's a lot of work for one guy, no matter how you slice it. But Chazz Palminteri isn't complaining, not in the least. After all, he's got no one to blame but himself. "A Bronx Tale" is all Palminteri's doing, a one-act, one-man autobiographical play about a young boy growing up in the Bronx and the two father figures who vie for his affections. One is his father, who wants nothing but the best for his son - and that includes a life sheltered as much as possible from the mean streets in which he's forced to grow up. The other's a mob boss who takes a liking to him, this kid who knows when to keep his mouth shut.

As reported in the Baltimore Sun and elsewhere, Robert De Niro had lunch on Saturday at Chazz: A Bronx Original, the Harbor East restaurant opened this summer by his friend, the actor Chazz Palminteri. De Niro was traveling on Saturday from Philadelphia, where he's filming a movie, to Washington, D.C., for the annual Kennedy Center Honors. I was at the restaurant when De Niro visited, with a dog's-eye view of the excitement. Actually it was less exciting than sweet. Palminteri and his Baltimore partners, the Vitale family, were obviously delighted that De Niro, a noted restaurateur in his own right, was coming for a visit.

The last time Chazz Palminteri performed "A Bronx Tale" in Baltimore, he came away with a restaurant. It was during the 2009 national tour of his autobiographical, one-man show that Palminteri met the Vitale family, the Little Italy restaurateurs that would become his partners in Chazz: A Bronx Original , the Harbor East Italian restaurant that opened in June 2011.  Now, the Academy Award-nominated actor is bringing his Baltimore adventure...

As a young man living in the Bronx, Chazz Palminteri would escape the city on long drives into the Westchester County countryside where he'd tool along curving, forested roads, staring at the set-back mansions. To a guy with empty pockets, the gated lawns and gabled rooflines looked like money, like class — like success. "Oh my God," he'd say to himself. "I want to be up here one day. " It may have taken decades, but Palminteri finally scored that Bedford, N.Y., address. These days, when Palminteri heads home, he drives along one of those woodsy roads, through one of those exclusive gates, and right up to his very own set-back mansion — a distinguished Georgian of rugged stone and stately gables.

Chazz Palminteri and his bus-driver dad, Lorenzo, became expert at keeping secrets. They could be gregarious, even expansive, but they knew when to shut their traps. For instance, Lorenzo Palminteri withheld crucial information about a murder that his then-9-year-old son witnessed from the family's Bronx front stoop in 1961. "At the time, I thought those men were fighting over the parking space in front of my building," says Palminteri, an Academy Award-nominated actor who specializes in playing thugs.

Guess it's not so surprising that a Yankee wanted a taste of the Bronx before suiting up against the Orioles Tuesday. Derek Jeter and Andruw Jones stopped by Chazz: A Bronx Original , the Fells Point restaurant owned by actor Chazz Palminteri, writer and star of "A Bronx Tale. " In the middle of a series against Baltimore, Jeter and Jones ordered a veal meatball, a coal-fired burrata pizza, chicken parmesan and shrimp served over polenta. Considering they were sorta feeding the enemy, the Chazz PR people were thrilled about the star encounter, sending out a press release about the lunch, including the shot of the Yankees smiling with restaurant general manager (and, they add, "huge Yankees fan")

Jason Ambrose, the co-owner and founding chef of Salt , has agreed to purchase a tavern on Haubert Street in Locust Point. "It won't be anything restaurant-y like Salt," Ambrose said. "It will be a 'bar with food.' " There isn't enough room inside the small establishment for tables, he said After seven years running the kitchen at Salt, Ambrose turned over day-to-day kitchen operations to Brian Lavin . Ambrose won't close on the property until early November, he said, and the liquor board must approve the transfer of the liquor license to Ambrose from the property's current owners, Inga and Adam Gardner, who operate a bar at the location named The House . Ambrose said he hopes to have the Locust Point bar open in early 2014.

Cast members from 1993's "A Bronx Tale" will reunite with Chazz Palminteri at Chazz: A Bronx Original on Monday night for a special fundraising happy hour. "A Bronx Tale" was the movie adaptation of Palminteri's one-man stage show of the same name. Almost 20 years later, Palminteri's love affair with his native borough would in part inspire the Inner Harbor restaurant that bears his name. Guests at Monday's happy hour will meet cast members from the movie, along with other Baltimore celebrities and sports figures who are helping the restaurant launch a new charitable fundraising campaign for the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.

A few weeks back my favorite film critic noted that ever young filmmaker in America wanted to be Martin Scorsese. But here's what even that genius didn't know: Robert De Niro wants to be Martin Scorsese.That, surely, is the impetus behind the curious "A Bronx Tale," in which Scorsese's chief collaborator for three decades moves behind the camera (while still staying in front of it) to film a corrosive tale about young men and wiseguys on the mean streets of a far New York 'hood -- Belmont Avenue, the Bronx, in the '60s.
