Foodies, rejoice! The definitive list of the best places to eat in Los Angeles is here once again, thanks to Los Angeles Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold.

Foodies, rejoice! The definitive list of the best places to eat in Los Angeles is here once again, thanks to Los Angeles Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold. The acclaimed food writer has released his list, “Jonathan Gold’s 101,” of the finest fine dining establishments in the city.

Last year it was Providence, the Michelin-starred seafood restaurant in Hancock Park, taking top honors for the second straight year. Like the ‘99-’01 Lakers, chef Michael Cimarusti’s restaurant earned its three-peat this year, sitting atop Gold’s list once again.

Taco Maria in Costa Mesa was the runner-up while last year’s runner-up, Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant Spago in Beverly Hills, slipped to third. Others in Gold’s top 10 from last year have returned to the top 10, like the Italian restaurants that make up Mozzaplex in Hollywood, the West L.A. sushi joint Shunji, and Culver City’s Asian street food haven Lukshon.

Jonathan joins Larry on AirTalk today to run down his list, share some of his personal favorites, and tell us which spots on his list offer the best meal at an affordable price.
