Our hearts are broken tonight. Last month Jonathan Gold came to the class I teach with my wife. Lisa had always wanted to invite him and I thought it would be amazing but didn’t think there was any way he would say yes. Lisa knew better, and contacted him, and he said yes right away and came and spoke with us for almost 3 hours. You couldn’t hope to meet someone more generous, smart, or knowledgeable about food, art, LA, and on and on. We are so fortunate that we had that morning with him, and so sad knowing there will never be another. If you don’t know his writing — please look it up. If you haven’t seen City of Gold — watch it. And if you can make your way to some of his favorite restaurants — go and eat and drink and eat some more.
