“Everyone calls me foodgod; scream it in the streets and run up to me in restaurants, and I want people calling me foodgod when they write about me — not Jonathan or ‘BFF,’” he told Page Six.  

He even gave an interview to OK! about being foodgod and all the awesome things happening around that!  “It’s becoming an addiction for me, which I love,” Jonathan proclaims.  Clearly!
