About Daniel Holzman

Chef Daniel Holzman started cooking at age 15 at some of the finest restaurants in the United States. He went on to attend the Culinary Institute of America with a full scholarship from the James Beard Foundation. 

His culinary journey has taken him from New York to Las Vegas to California, and then finally back to New York. After years of running the kitchens of many fine-dining restaurants, he gained notoriety over the last several years for mastering one of the quintessential foods of his childhood: the meatball. 

The Meatball Shop, the brainchild of Daniel and his childhood pal Michael Chernow, has taken NYC by storm, now with several locations around the city. Many New Yorkers will swear that there's simply no better meatball than what comes out of Daniel's kitchen.
