CUESA’s Facebook page has a contest for free tickets to a Q&A with LA food critic Jonathan Gold, and two tickets to see the film about him, City of Gold. All you have to do to enter is mention an under the radar restaurant at the following link. Pretty easy for us, eh?
I caught the documentary in the spring, and it got me excited enough about LA’s food scene to plan a trip.
LA has a great food scene. Once you get over the “it’s LA” problems, there’s a lot of population and a lot of money floating around down there. I’d even venture to say that LA is more “real” than SF has become over the last 10 years. People - actual people, like chefs and dishwashers - can even afford to live there.
