Besha Rodell to Replace Jonathan Gold at LA Weekly

LA Weekly has hired Besha Rodell to be their new restaurant critic. Rodell was until recently the critic at Creative Loafing in Atlanta, where her position was a victim of the paper's "restructuring." Her work has garnered her a Beard nomination and two wins in the Association of Food Journalists' "newspaper feature writing" category.

Rodell has big shoes to fill at her new job: her predecessor Jonathan Gold famously won the first Pulitzer ever awarded to a food critic. Gold left LA Weekly in February to go write for the Los Angeles Times. Congratulations to Rodell.
