From Little Ethiopia and Koreatown to Little Armenia and Pico-Robertson, Los Angeles offers a fascinating array of multicultural delights. The documentary City of Gold paints an amazing portrait of Los Angeles through the eyes of Jonathan Gold, the friendly food critic who died in 2018. The Pulitzer Prize winner visits the most unremarkable restaurants, bistros and food trucks, and discovers the city as a complex breeding ground for more than one hundred different food cultures. Via architecture critic Reyner Banham we arrive at the foodies in this offbeat look at a global city.
