In New York, the New York Times has performed a great culinary experiment by inviting six young children to eat at famous French restaurant Daniel. The menu served to them normally costs $220.
The menu was prepared by star chef Daniel Boulud whose goal was for the children to discover lots of flavours, lots of layers and lots of textures. There is much debate about children and restaurants but this entertaining video gives great insight to how young children perceive fine dining.
Caviar did not seem to be to their liking but the rare Wagyu Beef Rib-Eye was a big success as they all said it was excellent. The children also loved a nonalcoholic cocktail. “This is, like, the only good course,” said one seven year old.
The video was shot by Spellbound director Jeffrey Blitz for The New York Times.
