Glad to see I can answer with a bias as well.

I write a blog from the perspective of being a pastry chef and i also collect blogs written by chefs and cooks, so I visit those pretty often. Here's my list:

Eggbeater (mine)
Line Cook.
Michael Laiskonis (pastry chef)
Tasting Menu-- Dana
Cannelle et Vanille
Chez Pim
101 Cookbooks
In Praise of Sardines
{More Here.}
Slow Food

Martha Stewart
Food & Wine
Edible San Francisco (it's National, so a lot of cities have their own)
San Francisco Magazine
NY Magazine
New Yorker (they've started to have a lot more in depth coverage of chefs and food writing)
Edward Behr's Quarterly Newsletter, The Art of Eating

Wednesday Newspapers:
NY Times
LA Times

This is a great topic! Thanks for bringing it up!
SF Chronicle
Restaurant Start Up & Growth is one of the best. You can sign-up for a Free Six Month Subscription at my website http://www.foodserviceresource.com/UsefulLink/UsefulLinks.htm. Another on-line Newsletter that I like is Daily Restaurant Industry News.
NRN is the basic rag. I also like Food Arts and Saveur but I tend to be in fine dining. There are others but those are all I generally have time to focus on.
Food Arts
Restaurants & Institutions
I publish Foodservice East and www.foodserviceeast.com so that's my biased reply, but if you're in the Northeast - and even elsewhere - it's worth checking out. We've been around 83 years, so that says something! I freelance for Nation's Restaurant News, FoodService Director, Foodservice Equipment & Supplies, and Restaurant Business and they're all national, well respected books that do a good job informing their readers. The NY Times Dining Section on Wed. is a must, and so is New York Magazine for me, and Crain's NY Business. I got my start at Restaurants & Institutions when it was called Institutions, so I have a soft spot for it. Jane Wallace, the publisher for many years, was a great person to work with. I don't know if there's anyone left who remembers her, or Jim Myers who edited it for a while and then went to Cooking for Profit. It was a fun time to be there - Phil Cooke worked for many years with FCSI was there as well, and Jerry Greenfield. Does anyone remember those folks?
I'll second that. Susan is in the "know"!
I love QSR and Gourmet Retailer just for the ads alone. Bringing in new products keeps my stores fresh. I try to bring in something new every 2 months! I love new product reviews!! Susan
FoodArts is great one, and is free for industry professionals. My other favorties are Restaurant Business, Hotel and Conference Center, and Saveur. Saveur doesn't have a lot articles on the industry, but a great mag to brainstorm from.
Actually read or subscribe to? When I can sqeeze anything in it's Today's Restaurant News or Savuer.
Thanks for the kind words.
Food Arts
Chain Leader
Restaurant Start Up and Growth is top of list for me. I also like Sante and Cheers.
