When and Where to Catch a Screening of Jonathan Gold's City of Gold Documentary at Sundance

Follow the Goldster around as he eats and philosophizes.

City of Gold
Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

Though the film festival itself is still a couple of weeks away, cinephiles and food lovers alike are already hearing their stomachs growl over the eventual Sundance unleashing of City of Gold.

The relatively lighthearted documentary follows Los Angeles' own cultural cuisine-ophile and LA Times staffer Jonathan Gold as he, well, does what he does: drives around the city's ethnically varied urban sprawl, poking into offbeat restaurants and trying to find the best of what's out there.

Of course, City of Gold is likely to be much more than just a day-in-the-life. While Eater hasn't found a trailer for the film yet, Gold's unique intelligence, his effortless ability to tap into the subtle nuances of differing regional food types and his cozy relationship with some of the city's finest chefs and restaurateurs are likely to play a pretty outsized role in the film.
