After an excellent lunch at goodburger last weekend (review forthcoming!), my boyfriend and I left talking about the rating I’d give it, and we ran into a problem. Up to this point, I’ve been using the same ratings scale for everything from super-fine dining to interesting supermarket finds, which is of course this:
When we started talking about goodburger’s rating, though, we realized that comparing a burger to a nine-course tasting menu with wine pairings is a little ridiculous. So I made up a lovely little donut hole graphic to be used in rating cheaper restaurants.
I thought it was sooooooo clever. But most of my friends agreed it looked like a turd. So I took my boyfriend’s suggestion and decided to use the fancy pink donut for the expensive restaurants and a plain glazed donut for the cheap eats:
And so the new donuts4dinner ratings system was realized. Look for it in new reviews coming soon! (And maybe some old ones, if I’m not too lazy.)
