THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN COLORADO

LARRY HERZ

Larry was born and raised in New York and graduated from George Washington University with a B.A. in marketing. He started managing restaurants in Manhattan, such as the legendary Tavern on the Green. However, in 1993, after being held up at gunpoint, Larry decided to pack his bags and move to Denver, CO.

Larry opened his first restaurant in Denver at 27 years old, the legendary family-style Italian restaurant Carmine’s on Penn. After selling it, he opened several more restaurants: Uncle Sam’s, A-Bar Union Station, Indigo, Go Fish Grill, and 730 South.

In 2017, after 29 years in the restaurant business, Larry decided to pursue his second career at OCN Eats. Today, Larry is the face of feature shows such as Restaurant Tours, What’s For Lunch, and Local Biz Buzz. He is also part of a foodie influencers group called DINE (Denver Influencers Networking Experience). Needless to say, Larry knows how to fight hunger and look good while doing it.

What’s for Lunch is a 5- to 10-minute live show scheduled at 11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. This show is designed to promote local Colorado restaurants, food trucks, caterers, or other prepared food businesses. Local Biz Buzz is a 5- to 10-minute live morning show scheduled at 9 a.m., Tuesday through Friday. This show is designed to promote local Colorado companies related to the food and beverage industry. 

Both shows provide an opportunity to inform residents or visitors about who you are and what you do. You can bring as much or as little of your product that you want to showcase to viewers, including any props or signage. In addition, you may want to showcase any additional items such as beverages, desserts, company swag, or your partners/purveyors—it’s up to you! Tell your story, talk about your products, promote how people can order, name drop all of your digital marketing platforms, and smile! It’s your chance to shine and make the most of your appearance; nobody can sell you like you! 

There are multiple platforms on which the promotional video will be shown: InstagramFacebook, and YouTube. If the featured product is food, the video will be live on the OCN Eats Instagram (15k Followers) and Facebook pages. If the featured product is a beverage, it will be live on the OCN Drinks Instagram (5k Followers) and Facebook. This goes live on 20 Facebook “Now” pages in Colorado, with a total following of over 800k. After the live performance, the video continues to be on those page feeds. It will also be uploaded to the OCN YouTube page where it can be shared by the businesses on their own website or social platforms. A one-minute video file is also available for purchase for a small fee.

Instagram reach ranges from 1k to 3k, and views range from the hundreds to 2.5k. Facebook reach is typically 8k to 10k, and views range from approximately 2k to 6k. This all depends on the level of engagement. Remember to share all of the content produced and provided on all of your own digital platforms! This show is complimentary, provided by OCN.

The Restaurants Near Me video series is created on-site at the restaurant location. It is a stunning showcase piece used to promote your business and is beautifully edited by a high-caliber team of editors and producers. It takes approximately an hour to film on location.

Restaurants featured in the show have an exceptional opportunity to present their restaurant to the community. Tell Colorado what your restaurant is all about and how it’s unique!

Restaurant Tours is a produced show that provides an in-depth look into one restaurant. Larry Herz sits down with the owner and discusses their background and the inspiration for their restaurant. It typically is a five-minute show and it takes a couple of hours to film. 

There are multiple platforms on which the promotional video will be shown: the primary platforms are InstagramFacebook, and YouTube. During filming, the restaurant will be featured on the OCN Eats Instagram story (average 500 reach) and then added to the feed shortly thereafter (15k followers). Once the full-length feature video is ready, that video trailer will be posted (average 3k reach) and the restaurant tagged. This will be posted on 20 Facebook “Now” pages in Colorado with a total following of over 800k. The video will also be uploaded to the OCN YouTube page (average views are 1k) and it can be shared and shared again by the businesses on their own platforms.

Born and raised in New York City, Larry started managing restaurants in Manhattan after graduating from George Washington University with a B.A. in marketing. There, he got to know the ins and outs of the restaurant industry, managing places like the legendary Tavern on the Green. However, in 1993, after being held up at gunpoint, Larry decided to pack his bags and move to Denver.

After moving to the Mile High City, Larry – only 27 years old at the time – opened his first restaurant, the legendary family-style Italian restaurant, Carmine’s On Penn. He sold it in 1997 and then opened Uncle Sam’s American-style comfort food in Greenwood Village. Next came A-Bar in Union Station, then Indigo, a contemporary American Restaurant in Cherry Creek, followed by his Go Fish Grill, also in Cherry Creek, and then 730 South in Bonnie Brae.

After 18 years in business, he closed 730 South in 2017 to pursue his second career at OCN Eats. Today, OCN Eats has several assets including an Instagram page, Facebook page, YouTube channel (featuring the show Restaurant Tours), and a foodie influencers group called DINE (Denver Influencers Networking Experience).
