Good News for Los Angeles
- Tom Armitage
In his latest review for LA Weekly, Jonathan Gold told
his readers that he is moving east this week to become
New York restaurant critic for Gourmet magazine. Then
comes the GOOD NEWS: "But I expect to spend quite of
bit of time in Los Angeles still and will continue to
write this column, albeit on a biweekly basis, into the
forseeable future." Bless you, Jonathan!

I would be devastated at Jonathan's leaving if I were
still in LA. One of my fondest memories of his
columns was his account of how he aspired to eat his
way from one end of Olympic (or was it Pico?) to the
other, but found it a hopeless task because as he
moved down the street the restaurants he had already
tried behind him were closing and reopening as
Thanks. That's so nice.
Eating my way from one end of Pico to the other
is certainly one of my fondest memories.
I never did make it as far west as Century City,
but I learned an awful lot about Los Angeles--
not to mention the cooking of Central America.
I (though not my parents) consider that year
the moral equivalent of grad school.
