The Footprint System

The Exquisite Footprint System: 

The blog is there to help poor lost souls in Berlin find the right restaurant for the right occasion. However, it needs a system. There are many restaurants in Berlin, mostly somewhere between mediocre and nice (which is usually the endearing word for mediocre). The following icons will help you break down the my endless ranting into one bottom line:
(no prints): You're standing in front of the restaurant and you're starving. Go if you must. Don't say I haven't warned you!
(one print): A place made for people like your partner's ex.
(two prints): Not really worth the bother, but you'll survive without too many traumatising memories.
(three prints): Middle of the road. It's there, so why not?
(four prints): Go there. Good quality, good value. An address to be remembered.
(five prints): Go there. I don't care if you're ill or if you don't even have enough money for the U-Bahn ticket there. You won't regret it.

* Additionally, more icons will try to categorise the restaurants to fit your particular needs:

Take the parents
Night out with friends
For friends from out of town
Post break-up: soul food

The footprint system does not apply to the Berliner Spezials:

Berliner Spezials – unlike normal posts – are comparative studies about one of the Berlin’s culinary symbols. For a whole week (5 days – Monday through Friday) I will feed off a certain Berliner dish daily. At the end of this week I will then publish the week’s rankings. Sounds simple? We’ll see about that!

In addition to sharing things with you, I would like you to share your opinions with me. Is there anything you want to know? Is there anything you want me to know? Any questions, requests, remarks? Post a comment or send an e-mail!
