City of Gold director Laura Gabbert

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:15 pm on 29 July 2015

For the last 29 years, LA Times restaurant reviewer Jonathan Gold has been revealing the best of Los Angeles in weekly instalments. He was the first reviewer to step out of the five star restaurants and into the suburban strip mall, looking for authentic, tasty food wherever he could find it. His reviews tell stories about LA, about the people who've moved there from around the world, the food they've brought with them, and how they've adapted, combined and improved their food in response to the other cultures living around them. The documentary City of Gold tells reviewer Jonathan Gold's story, and it was directed by Laura Gabbert.
