Daniel Holzman | A Story of Friendship, Loss, Growth And Wisdom

Born Or Made

This episode of Born or Made is a personal one, as Michael sits down with childhood best friend and business partner Daniel Holzman. Daniel is a chef, restaurateur, author and sought-after educator, who's work has been published in Saveur, the New York Times, TASTE, and Afar, among others. He's appeared in countless local and national broadcast segments and print publications, and as a competitor, lead character, and judge in hundreds of hours of television programming including The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, and many others.  Michael and Daniel met as kids growing up on the streets of New York City at the ages of 12 and 13. They came up together in the culinary world and eventually founded the Meatball Shop restaurants.  As deep as their personal friendship was, their professional relationship was a tumultuous one and they clashed over how to run their businesses, eventually parting ways for some time. Each went on his own path and recently reconnected and rekindled their friendship. In this episode Daniel and Michael dive into their relationship as friends and as business partners. They share their story of growing up and eventually launching an amazing business together. Plus, where they failed as business partners and how that almost destroyed their friendship forever. This is an honest conversation of wisdom and humility with each one admitting their flaws and insecurities. It's a must listen for anyone in a partnership, and an incredible story of entrepreneurialism, friendship, struggle and how ego and pride can take control of your better judgement, if you're not careful.

In 2010, Daniel returned to his hometown of New York City to team up with his childhood friend Michael Chernow and debut The Meatball Shop on New York City's Lower East Side. The mix-and-match menu of meatballs, served in a warm and convivial environment, was an instant hit. Five more locations of The Meatball Shop—in Williamsburg, the West Village, Chelsea, the Upper East Side and the Hell's Kitchen—opened in quick succession — and now Washington DC!

Episode 25: THIS Is Why You’re Single! With guest co-host Chef Daniel Holzman and writers/comedians Laura Lane and Angela Spera

Love Bites

Pondering why you’re single? Well, you could peruse the Self Help section of Barnes and Noble (if you can find one still standing), spending your hard-earned dough on stacks of weepy books about how you’ve gotta Get Out There, Girl! or why life is really better without a mate. Or….. you could laugh it off. Which is what Angela Spera and Laura Lane want you to do by seeing their sketch show, reading their book, or listening to their podcast. So this week, we’ve got the THIS IS WHY YOU’RE SINGLE team on to chat about how neither of them is single, what they’ve learned from their quickly-growing empire, and how they use humor to get where others dare not tread. But before we even get into that, Jacqueline mourns Ben’s absence with a single guest co-host, Daniel Holzman, the chef/owner of the Meatball Shops in NYC. What have they learned about why they’re single from reading Laura and Angela’s book? Is it because they date within the food industry–or don’t?! Is it because they have sex too soon, are too picky, or are just too awesome for the current mid-thirty-something dating pool? Have a listen and find out. “I would like to say, first of all, I love a good, smooth bald head.” [13:10] – Laura Lane

This week on Chef’s Story, Dorothy Cann Hamilton sits down with two of New York’s most interesting restauranteurs, visionaries and renegades – Michael Chernow and Daniel Holzman, the men behind the highly successful Meatball Shop chain. From their early days scrapping and hustling at age 14 and working at various restaurants and bars across New York City to their present day reality as successful businessmen, hear their journey from start to finish. Listen in as they recall the early discussions that eventually led to the opening of the first Meatball Shop, which was wildly successful from the start. Hear about their trials, tribulations, expansion plans and the genesis of their vision and brand. This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch. “We were so lucky on so many levels when we opened up – because the economy was tough, [The Meatball Shop] was a date that you could afford.” [29:59] “If you’re expanding and growing you have to dress for the job you want and plan ahead.” [41:59] –Daniel Holzman of The Meatball Shop on Chef’s Story “The general philosophy we use is put your staff first and everything else falls into place.” [39:33] “Nobody is afraid of a meatball – you can drop one in front of anybody internationally and they know what it is.” [43:00] –Michael Chernow of The Meatball Shop on Chef’s Story
