Like a famous film director, L.A. Weekly‘s star food critic gets his name above the title these days. â€œJonathan Gold Presentsâ€Â is what it says on the paper’s announcement of this Sunday’s tasting event at the Petersen Automotive Museum.Â And why not? The party coincides with Gold’s annual round-up of restaurant recommendations, a list thatÂ legions of L.A. eaters rely on.
Forty of his picks, likely to include a wild range of old faves and new discoveries, will offer tastes, and there will be pours of beer, wine and spirits. Part of the proceeds benefit Heal the Bay and Make a Wish Foundation. Music, raffle prizesâ€”you know the drill. Add $8 for parking to the ticket price when budgeting the day.
