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.
