Chazz: A Bronx Original

Chazz's Table was intended as a glamorous amenity at the Harbor East restaurant. Actor and co-owner Chazz Palminteri eats there. Michael Phelps, Derek Jeter and other celebs have, too.

Framed by mahogany walls hung with Palminteri memorabilia, the red leather half-booth occupies an alcove just off the main dining floor. Like the restaurant, the table is equal parts Bronx and Hollywood. The setting seems to say, "Look, but don't approach."

Fork & Wrench

The three lounge tables in this Canton charmer, with their brocaded booths, have the sex appeal at Fork & Wrench — and the ever-present reserved signs.

But the mezzanine tables have an allure all their own, and diners are beginning to catch on to these four small but comfortable booths, which you wouldn't know about unless you ask. "One of our liquor reps has adopted the mezzanine," says co-owner Andy Gruver. "It's a little quieter up here, and you get a great view of the tables in the Study and the garden."

B&O Brasserie

Tables 53, 54 and 55 are in the balcony where athletes like Domonique Foxworth and Nick Swisher get seated. The cast of "VEEP" was placed here, too.

"They are great tables because they are fairly private, but you can still feel as though you are part of the action," says general manager Marcus Garner. "They are like being in a private dining car."
