I love Jonathan Gold. I never met the man, and he felt like a larger than life figure as the champion for all of Los Angeles' food community, but he also seemed undeniably approachable and relatable. His drive to find delicious food and share it with all of us through his writing made him ours as much as we were his. He's a LA institution, and it's because he has, far and away, best encapsulated what makes this city different from all others. Food brings people together, and sharing food from different worlds can bring people of all walks on the same path. JGold got that, and frequently paved that path for all of us Angelenos to find common ground. Let's not forget that. Let's keep eating, and keep talking, and remember what he does for us as eaters, and as people.
So, I ate tacos tonight. You should too.
