Original story:

Jonathan Gold is the restaurant critic for the Los Angeles Times. He is the most influential restaurant critic in Southern California. His “Jonathan Gold’s 101 Best Restaurants” list in the Los Angeles Times is a bible for foodies, and being on the list is the aspiration of every restaurateur and chef in Southern California.

In the 1980s, Jonathan was the music editor of L.A. Weekly and he wrote the Counter Intelligence column. In 2007, he won the Pulitzer Prize in criticism as the paper’s restaurant critic–the first time a restaurant critic had ever won a Pulitzer.

Jonathan has also written for a number of magazines and was for a time the New York restaurant critic for Gourmet magazine.

I interviewed Jonathan at Lincoln Cafe in Pasadena so you’ll hear the wonderful sounds of a busy cafe in the background during our conversation.
