So, this week Jonathan Gold
's 99 Essential LA Restaurant
list was published in the LA Weekly
Of course, there are many excellent eats all over Los Angeles, but as you would expect, many of the restaurants that made Jonathan Gold's list reside on some main culinary arteries of Los Angeles like Melrose Ave., Beverly Blvd. and Wilshire Blvd. From the list, I counted 6 restaurants on Melrose Ave, 5 on Beverly Blvd. and 5 on Wilshire Blvd.
What you may not expect is that in fourth place with 4 restaurants is - you got it - Colorado Blvd Baby!!
So a BIG CONGRATULATIONS out to the 4 Colorado joints to make it on to Jonathan Gold's elite list for 2009.
