Recently, the New York Times invited six second graders from P.S. 295 in Brooklyn, New York to a seven-course tasting menu at renowned French restaurant Daniel. The kids were served by five waiters and their meals were prepared by chef Daniel Boulud himself.
While the diners seemed to enjoy the experience overall, it was clear that their palettes weren’t ready to experience the genius of chef Boulud to their full potential. One of the kids pointed out that the only good course was a nonalcoholic cocktail he tasted.
The conclusion? Kids don’t know how to appreciate a good meal. What a waste.
