Jonathan Gold and Rick Bayless Squabble Over Mexican Food

New, 1 comment

Things are getting a little nasty between Chicago chef Rick Bayless and LA Weekly food writer Jonathan Gold, who called out the celebrity chef last week for claiming "to introduce Angelinos to 'authentic' Mexican cuisine" with his Los Angeles restaurant Red O, which has not been receiving stellar reviews. Bayless then accused Gold (via Twitter) of failing to check his facts and even called his Pulitzer into question, although sources indicate that Gold is citing the quotation correctly. He also calls Gold "mean or sloppy."
