Our Annual Jonathan Gold 101 Recap

This week on The Stew our annual Jonathan Gold 101 list recap where we literally discuss every single restaurant on the list starting at 101 and going to 1. It’s long, arduous, unnecessarily unfair and ignorant. We voice somehow very strong opinions about dozens of restaurants, despite having never visited them a single time, many we’ve never even heard of, sorry!
