The Best Restaurants in L.A.

Listen now (49 min) | L.A. Times food critic Bill Addison recently published his list of the 101 Best Restaurants in L.A., an annual tradition that started with Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer, Jonathan Gold. So today I invited him on the pod to talk through his process, which restaurants made the cut, which ones didn't, how the pandemic influenced his decisions (how do you evaluate a restaurant if you're only eating their food from a carton?), and how the recent reckoning in the food world regarding race and representation impacted his decision-making. He also tells us which restaurants he suggests visitors to L.A. to hit up first, why it's so hard to get a reservation at the Times' Restaurant of the Year, and which restaurant would've been #102.
