Jonathan Gold

The stupendous, and entirely unique restaurant critic/food writer Jonathan Gold died last weekend.  Like for so many others, Gold’s reviews helped me to explore and engage with the vast and incredibly complex city of Los Angeles when I moved here two years ago.  Gold’s writing illustrates how food connects people to each other and to place, much as does Bourdain’s, and his death too is an enormous loss.

Here’s a piece of his from 1998 about the year he tried to eat at every restaurant on Pico Blvd.
