The Gold-en State of Eating: '40 Tastes' Food & Wine Event
Forget "You are what you eat." What you want to be eating in L.A. is what the LA Weekly's Jonathan Gold is eating. And while you may clutch your fingerprint-smudged personally annotated copy of his 99 Restaurants annual list as you use your Google map make your way from taqueria to San Gabriel Valley strip mall to white linen tablecloth finery, one way to eat what the J. Gold eats is to get a ticket to The 2nd Annual Gold Standard Food & Wine Event, where you can sample food from an assemblage of chefs and restaurants curated by the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic himself.Taking place on Sunday, February 28th at the Petersen Auto Museum, attendees will have their pick of 40 of what Gold calls the "best tastes" from restaurants including: Babita, Beacon, Little Dom’s, Loteria, Nickel Diner, Palate, Bistro LQ, LudoBites, Good Girl Dinette, Kogi BBQ, Mo-Chica, Meals by Genet, Kyochon, Mozza, Let’s Be Frank, Saffron Spot, Upstairs 2 and more. The event is a fundraiser as well, so you'll be eating in support of causes far better than your insatiable appetite; a portion of the proceeds benefit Heal the Bay and Make A Wish Foundation.
