A public tribute to the late food critic Jonathan Gold will take place at the steps of Los Angeles City Hall on Sunday.

Gold, who wrote for the Los Angeles Times, was acclaimed for being an ambassador of Angeleno culture and a food guide to the city before dying in July at age 57 due to pancreatic cancer.

He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize while writing for LA Weekly.
