Andrew Zimmern Gushes About LA Food Scene.
Unlike Bourdain, Andrew Zimmern loves the food in Los Angeles. In an interview with LAist he called it “mind-bogglingly spectacular” …
I’ve been eating here 40 years, and there was a time when it was very myopic, there was a time when it was way too pretentious and self-involved, there was a time when it was all about Mediterranean food and it didn’t do it as well as some other cities, but … several things happened over the last ten, fifteen years that have created a food town that is second to none, globally. I don’t know how you can make the case that the L.A. food scene isn’t mind-bogglingly spectacular these days.
And it’s not just in print. Andrew said the same to me when I asked him about his feelings towards the city at his Pop-Up a few years back. See his adamancy that LA can hold its own in this exclusive DeathbedFood® video interview:
