LA Weekly Releases Jonathan Gold's 99 Essential L.A. Restaurants
Posted by Charlie Harris

LA Weekly's Jonathan Gold has announced his list of the 99 Essential L.A. Restaurants 2011. Gold, the first food writer to win a Pulitzer for criticism, has acquired legions of fans and immeasurable influence as he seemingly leaves no corridor of Los Angeles dining unexplored. Few critics are as adept at appreciating the merits of the highest and the humblest cuisines. And he's clearly not afraid of ingesting just about anything, say, lethally spicy fried corn turnovers with black corn fungus or  live octopus at a Korean seafood restaurant. Here's a sampling of the restaurants new to the list this year.
