Here's a scientifically precise breakdown of each rating:
0 cherries: I'd rather go hungry than eat here. Given the nature of this blog, that's saying something.
1 cherry: Will do in a pinch (eg, to prevent death by starvation), but won't be coming back here.
2 cherries: I'll come back if whoever I'm eating with has a real craving. And if I like that person.
3 cherries: Now we're talking. Food worth coming back for, if it's convenient.
4 cherries: Food worth going out of your way to find.
5 cherries: The mecca! I'd be willing to fly back to this city solely for this restaurant.
