Journalist Jervey Tervalon remembers his long friendship with late food critic Jonathan Gold in a poem.

Zach Brooks talks about what it meant to read Jonathan Gold’s review of Vespertine, one of LA’s more controversial restaurant openings in recent memory.

Writer Tien Nguyen remembers when Jonathan Gold defended his love of the San Gabriel Valley noodle shops against critics.

This week, we revisit one of Jonathan Gold’s favorite LA establishments, Jitlada.

Before Jonathan Gold became the voice of LA’s culinary scene, he was a music writer. Eater’s Mona Holmes recalls Gold’s 1989 LA Weekly feature on N.W.A.

“From the stoop of my building, it seemed like a giant block party,” Gold wrote in 1992, just a week after the Los Angeles Riots.

As we continue to mourn the loss of Jonathan Gold, former colleague Carolina Miranda from the LA Times stopped by to share her favorite Gold review.
