The 10 Best Food Neighborhoods from Jonathan Gold's 99 Essential L.A. Restaurants

A tour of Gold's gospel.

Each year Jonathan Gold treks through the greater Los Angeles county in search of the perfect dumpling, ceviche, or curry on behalf of his fellow Angelenos. The result is a kind of foodie gospel that residents (and visitors) reference when they need a culinary awakening, or just a good huarache to tell their friends about. But the best thing about his list may be that it gives you a point of entry to the otherwise vast, sprawling land mass that is Los Angeles County. To that end, we've highlighted the neighborhoods where one could eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner according to Mr. Gold's recommendations (and a couple others because we like them). Bon appetit!
