Jonathan Gold is America's Best Food Critic


Chowhounders love Mr. Gold, Yelpers love Mr. Gold, Westside grannies love Mr. Gold. Anthony Bourdain called Mr Gold "god". And now, Daily Meal tells us chefs also love him, ranking him the best in the country. Of course, Los Angeles already knew this, but now it's an indisputable empirical fact. Mr. Wells of New York Times ranked only third. [DM]
