Gold died on Saturday in Los Angeles after being diagnosed earlier this month with pancreatic cancer, the Los Angeles Times reported.

LOS ANGELES - Jonathan Gold, the first restaurant critic to win a Pulitzer Prize, has died at age 57 of pancreatic cancer.

"He was the soul of this city and all of its unbelievable flavors", Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti wrote on Twitter. His noted preference for "hole-in-the-wall joints, street food, mom-and-pop shops, and ethnic restaurants" helped champion a new kind of criticism in the city, one that saw both strip-mall eateries and haute culinary establishments as worthy of critical attention.

"Gold pioneered a different approach to food criticism". "I feel like we won't have our guide, we won't have the soul", said Laura Gabbert, who directed "City of Gold", a 2015 documentary about the critic.

"Before Tony Bourdain, before reality TV and Parts Unknown and people really being into ethnic food in a serious way, it was Jonathan who got it, completely", popular food writer and editor Ruth Reichl told New York Times. After leaving UCLA, where he was initially accepted on his skill as a cellist, Gold wrote reviews with L.A. Weekly as a music editor.

Gold also won numerous James Beard Foundation journalism awards during this career. 'In the early '80s, no one else was there.

Most of Gold's reviews appeared in two newspapers - LA Weekly and The Los Angeles Times, where he had been the chief critic since 2012. He wrote about food the way he wrote about music, vividly and vibrantly, making us feel as if we were there with him, experiencing what he was experiencing.
