I wrote this puzzle for my company's actuarial newsletter. Only one of our actuaries solved it (not sure how many tried to solve it, but it's at least 10). Good luck! Feel free to email me with your solution.
Six couples each stayed for one week (Monday through Sunday) in New York City. There were seven restaurants that the couples wanted to try, so they had dinner at one of the seven restaurants each night they were in New York. No two couples ever had dinner at the same restaurant on the same night. From the clues below, can you figure out the full name of each tourist and which restaurant they ate at on which night?
1. Aquavit was the first restaurant the Norrises tried, and Chanterelle was the last.
2. The six women are Henry's wife, Mrs. Quinn, Betty, Emily, Gregg's wife, and Mrs. Packard.
3. Alice and her husband ate at Aquavit, Nobu and March on consecutive nights.
4. Babbo was visited on three consecutive nights by Larry, the Ogilvys, and Emily.
5. On Sunday, Kevin ate at Nobu while Flora ate at the Four Seasons.
6. Isaac and his wife ate at March, Babbo and Aquavit on consecutive nights.
7. The Norrises never ate at any restaurant the night after the Ogilvys had been there.
8. Per Se was the first restaurant the Ogilvys tried, and the last restaurant the Montgomerys tried.
9. James, Donna's husband, and Mr. Roberts all agreed that Chanterelle had the best atmosphere of all the restaurants.
10. On Wednesday, Carol ate at the Four Seasons, Henry ate at Aquavit, and the Quinns ate at Per Se. None of the six couples were eating at March that night.
11. The couple that tried Babbo first tried Aquavit last.
12. Henry ate at Chanterelle the night after Alice, who ate there the night after the Montgomerys did.
13. The Robertses ate at Per Se, Babbo and the Four Seasons on consecutive nights.
14. On Monday, Emily ate at the Four Seasons while Henry ate at Nobu.
15. None of the couples tried the Four Seasons on Thursday night.
16. Betty tried March later in the week than the Four Seasons.
