The latest issue of The New Yorker appeared this week with a profile of Jonathan Gold, the Pulitzer Prize-winning restaurant critic for our sister paper, LA Weekly.The piece called "The Scavenger" by Dana Goodyear follows Gold down a path paved with odd edibles and organ meats, L.A.'s divey-est taco stands and bizarre, regional Thai food. It sets him up as the herald and king of the Angeleno food scene, and divulges on what it's like to be the sort of man who eats at five hundred restaurants a year.
You have to be a New Yorker subscriber to read the whole thing. Non-subscribers can check out Goodyear's blog, who links to some choice pieces from Gold's canon. In it, she mentions Gold chowing down on hallucinagenic meat.
