Restaurant critic Jonathan Gold (LA Weekly, a sister publication of Miami New Times) recently became the first restaurant critic to ever get honored with a Pulitzer Prize. His newspaper, in honor of the well-deserved feat (Gold is one of the absolute best), published a series of photos of the hitherto anonymous reviewer celebrating. Which leads us to wonder: Is Gold retiring as of this week, or will he just continue on as a recognizable (and thus much less effective) reviewer?
