Clearly I'm biased (see my work experience), but I would highly recommend Restaurants & Institutions magazine (www.rimag.com). Its sister publications include Chain Leader (www.chainleader.com), Foodservice Equipment & Supplies (www.fesmag.com) and HOTELS magazine (www.hotelsmag.com), covering the chain restaurant segment, equipment & supplies segment, and hotel F&B segment, respectively. These are all excellent publications.
Outside of my company, I would recommend Food Arts, NRN, etc.
I'm a pastry chef- so I look to Pastry Art & Design, Chocolatier, Pastry's Best and Retail Baker. I'm sure there is a lot more out there that I am missing. I'd love to find out about more. However- I think my Husband would freak if I subscribed to one more magazine.

You get the idea my postal carrier hates me... I get bewteen 50-60 industry publications a month, YES before i get flamed I am beginning to cancel and replace them with electronic formats.
I typically receive about 30-40 different publications in the restaurant and hospitality industry.
many of them free subscription, but others which offer first hand information, and always on top of industry happenings and trends are worth the paid subscription fees. here's my top 10 list:
1) Nations restaurant news
2) Restaurant Business
3) Restaurant & Institutions
5) Food Service Equip/supplies
6) Restaurant Hospitality
7) Food Service Director
8) Hospitality Design
10) New York
I hope anyone can reference my list and reciprocate any interesting publications/journals, I am also interested to learn more about international restaurant trends and concept developments, I look forward to learning new restaurant related tidbits.

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with.

By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it.
