  • Los Angeles Times

Jonathan Gold is the restaurant critic for the Los Angeles Times. He won the Pulitzer Prize in criticism in 2007 and was a finalist again in 2011. A Los Angeles native, he began writing the Counter Intelligence column for the L.A. Weekly in 1986, was the restaurant critic for California, Los Angeles and Gourmet magazines, and wrote about death metal and gangsta rap for Rolling Stone and Spin. He is delighted that he has managed to forge a career out of the professional eating of tacos.
