Chazz Palminteri spotted at Aldo's



You know you love my Celebrity Watch feature. Don't pretend you don't. You know it's fun to find out what celebs eat when they visit local restaurants.

The latest is actor Chazz Palminteri, who was last in Baltimore this spring starring in "A Bronx Tale" at the Hippodrome.  

I hear that this week Palminteri had dinner several times at Aldo's in Little Italy, enjoying pastas like pappardelle with wild boar ragu and orecchiette, broccoli raab, and mild Italian sausage. He also had the chicken Milanese, and sauteed sweet peppers and potatoes as an appetizer.

What's interesting is the reason Palminteri is in town. He met Sergio Vitale of Aldo's when he was here in the spring and kept in touch. He's returned, says my source, "to discuss possible restaurant concepts with the folks at Aldo’s."

Or maybe it's just an excuse to eat some more good pasta.

Helps to have a Hollywood buget if you are going to eat at Aldos.

A rumor's not a rumor that doesn't die.


Love a cuppa coffee with Chazz.

I thoroughly enjoyed A Bronx Tale, even though he grew up in a different area of the Bronx than I did.

Sounds like fun, Camille, but watch out for flying shards of porcelain.
