Ok, motivated by these two threads bashing(?), and maybe even whining(?), about Jonathan Gold's 99 Essential Restaurants 2010:
How about we stop the negativity and we 'Hounds compile our own 99 Essential Restaurants list?
Not the "Best" (that's maxzook's balliwick), but your list of essential restaurants for Los Angeles.
I think 99 would be difficult for even the most intrepid of 'Hounds.
So how about we limit the choices to 10 per 'Hound.
And, if I've got time, I'll actually complie a list of the 99 most mentioned restaurants from the post.
Have it at ...
