Last week the LA Weekly released Jonathan Gold's annual picks for his Essential 99 restaurants in Los Angeles. Though you can condense the multiple web pages into one printable list, or get your fingers good and inky with the paper itself, some intrepid diners have been using some web tools to make the endeavor to enjoy meals at all 99 spots more manageable.

Like a robust glass of red with a rare, well-seasoned steak, you can pair this Google Map created by Miss Fruitfly with a spreadsheet assembled by The Butcher Blog, who explains how this doc came to be:

We thought Gold deserved better, so we created a sortable list of all the restaurants for you to more easily see them all in one place in what ever order you like. We know that people spend a great deal of time eating through Gold’s lists, and this is a pastime we heartily encourage. Port the list over to your spreadsheet and add your own notes and rankings, port it into Google maps. Our only wish is that unless you happen to be THE Jonathan Gold, you not edit the synopsis we pulled from Mr. Gold’s text.

Noted! Now all you need is an appetite, some partners in dine, and a wallet full of bucks. Happy eating!
