If you eat many meals in restaurants, either by preference or of necessity, The New York Times Restaurant Journal is going to make your life a happier one. It offers space to record your impressions--and other useful information, such as hours of operation and whether reservations are required--of the restaurants where you've dined, or your notes on restaurants you want to try. That section is followed by a double index (one, alphabetical by restaurant name; the second, by city and more specific location). When, dabbing your lips, you make notes about your latest meal and the circumstances surrounding it, you can index the restaurant by its page number.
To whet your appetite, or as a diversion while you await your meal, excerpts of historic articles, dining-out stories, and more from The New York Times appear throughout this journal's pages.
