Map of the Day: Gold's 99 Essential Restaurants
View Jonathan Gold’s 99 Essential L.A. Restaurants 2009 in a larger map
You've seen the list, you've double-counted and confirmed you're not crazy--it is 105, not just 99, and now you're ready to tackle the task: Eat at all of the restaurants selected by the LA Weekly's Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer Jonathan Gold as LA's essentials. The annual list--err, event for the foodie set--is still fairly hot off the presses, and for many means that no matter how many hot spots they've settled in for a fork, hand, spoon, chopstick, or mouthful, there's still plenty left to try.
Twitter user missfruitfly geeked out and made a Google Map of the list, and the LA Weekly was tickled enough to run it on their Squid Ink blog. Well, we're tickled enough to run it, too. Happy eating, Angelenos! You're sure to do well following Gold's list; after all, even the Mayor knows TheJGold knows where to eat in L.A.
