You're about to look like a dining-out sensei who always gets a table, even at the hottest spots in town, thanks to Google (of course). 



This week, Google rolled out a new feature to its restaurant listings that shows users peak times at restaurants so they can best plan their walk-in meal.

The new feature can be found by selecting the "More Info" section on the restaurant's Google listing.

There, you'll see a bar graph that illustrates the resto's peak visiting hours (see Ravenous Pig listing, right). Select the day you plan to visit and the bar graph will change depending on the data Google has pulled.

From the looks of it, the Ravenous Pig is about to get real busy at 3 p.m. on Friday, aka right meow (heads up, Petrakises!).
