Need a visual aid for your print edition? This week Jonathan Gold considers the ontology of the burrito (“tell me what kind of burrito you like and I will tell you who you are, but tell me what kind of burrito you really think I should like and I start looking for the next escape route out of town”).

A Primer.” (Which got new NYT restaurant critic Sam Sifton thinking about burritos too. Or longing for them, really, having none too many where he is.)
