As the publisher of this magazine, I was torn on how to approach the following story. I was going to have one of my amazing writers tell the story, but then I realized that there is no possible way they could exemplify the man known as Larry Herz. I am sure I will not do him justice, but I am going to tell you about the Larry that I have started getting to know. So please give me latitude as I am not a writer.
Several months ago I met the devil in person.... its name was Tik Tok. While dancing with the devil, I came across this man who experienced 5 restaurants in 5 hours. I was curious how he ate so much... lol. I took a shot in the dark and messaged him, knowing he would never respond to me, and 1 minute later he invited me to his studio to experience the wonder in person. I'm not kidding. I was shocked. That was the beginning of a friendship and food journey I will never forget. Thank you, Larry.
With an education and a passion that can only come from the likes of New York, and 3 decades of restaurant experience, he is the master of what cuisine should be. Although his delicious footprint is all over the city, you may be familiar with his saucy side the best. As the creator and founder of Carmine's on Penn, his food prowess has graced Denver. Not the Real Housewives of New York.
Larry, no matter what you may think, isn't consumed with food. His passion is helping people in local communities connect with their neighbors and friends, and there isn't any better way to do that than through food.
Larry IS NOT a food critic! He is actually the opposite. He does all the taste testing for us. As Denver's premiere restaurant promoter, he tries all the food and tells us where to go on the front range. Rough job Larry. :)
