According to LA Observed, adventurous diner and restaurant critic for LA Weekly, the one and only Jonathan Gold, was "spotted shaking hands in the Los Angeles Times building yesterday." Rumor has it that he may rejoin the Times after his upcoming Gold Standard tasting event on March 4. In the 90s Gold wrote about food and music for the Times, and has continued to pen a piece here and there.
So, naturally one wonders if, perhaps, Gold would supersede LA Times Restaurant Critic S. Irene Virbila. Remains to be seen.
