Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize winning food writer for the LA Times. This week he reviews Gjusta, the latest concept from the Gjelina restaurant group in Venice.

“Phat Thai is a dish that a lot of us stopped ordering 10 years ago,” Gold says. “It’s usually sweet, it’s orange, it’s gloppy, it’s everything mall about mall Thai food.”

However, Gold is impressed with Ricker’s nuanced style (the noodles are cooked slowly in freshly rendered pigs fat) and ultimately finds the do-it-yourself noodle experience a win for Chinatown.
