The Taste LA Pays Tribute to Jonathan Gold This Weekend at Paramount Studios

The Los Angeles Times’ The Taste is back this Labor Day weekend at Paramount Studios in Hollywood for 3 evenings of amazing food, wine, spirits and chef experiences, plus unique culinary pop-ups and collaborations. And, yes, there are a few tickets still available.

Jonathan Gold has always been a big part of the food and wine festival, but this year The Taste will pay tribute to our beloved restaurant critic through special programming at each event, celebrating the life of the man whose passion for food, accessible voice and unparalleled insights won him a well-deserved Pulitzer and a permanent place in Los Angeles history. Several restaurants at this year’s #TasteLA will be serving dishes in his honor, including Faith and Flower, Herringbone, Pacific Dining Car, and Chiguacle Sabor Ancestral de Mexico.

Dozens of hand-picked local restaurants each evening will showcase our city’s rich and diverse culinary scene by serving you their best. Sip, savor, and celebrate Southern California’s most inspired food and drink. 21 and over only, of course. Chefs at the event include Ludo Lefebvre , Briana Valdez, Ricardo Zarate, Sean Lowenthal, Kim Stodel, and many more.

Details, dishes, and schedule below! I hope we’ll see you there!
