Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize winning food writer for the LA Times. This week he returns to the rekindled Empress Pavilion in Chinatown. When the restaurant first opened in the late 1980′s customers waited 2 hours for dim sum. Today the lines have moved to the San Gabriel Valley, but Jonathan says the dim sum at the newly renovated Empress Pavilion remains a solid (line-free) option.

Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize winning food writer for the LA Times. This week he visits Cadet, the solo project from chef Kris Tominaga (formerly of Hart & the Hunter). While he’s intrigued by the concept, Jonathan is less impressed with the execution of the large plates which are served with an assortment of house-made side dishes. However, he suggests that it’s a solid watering hole with an interesting bar program and satisfying snacks.
