Phil Rosenthal's Los Angeles

10/26/2015

Phil Rosenthal

Phil Rosenthal is a writer and director who is best known as the creator of the Emmy Award-winning CBS comedy, Everybody Loves Raymond. Rosenthal is the host of I’ll Have What Phil’s Having, a food and travel show on PBS. The Los Angeles episode airs Monday, Nov. 2, 2015 at 10/9 Central (8 p.m. N.Y. / WNET). Read on for Rosenthal’s thoughts on the L.A. dining spots he visits on the show.

There are cities that have a few go-to cuisines, but L.A., at the moment, has more than any. That’s why I think it is the best food city in America right now. It’s our cultural diversity that's our strength. And the strength is in the sheer numbers: we have the biggest population of Chinese people in the world outside of China. Also, the Korean population, Mexicans, Thai, Armenians... We could keep going. They've brought their cultures and cuisines into this massive expanse, and if you're playing the odds of hitting a great place to eat in L.A., you're going to win more times here than anywhere else.
