What happens when second graders are served a seven-course, $220-per-person meal at a three-Michelin-star restaurant? Spoiler alert: They can’t wait for dessert.
The New York Times Magazine, as part of its fall food issue, brought six second graders from P.S. 295 in Brooklyn, New York, to Daniel, the much-lauded restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Daniel Boulud, the chef/owner, makes a good-natured appearance in front of the children, who despite being adorable are one tough set of critics.
The video, titled “Small Plates,” went live on The New York Times website on October 10 and quickly drew hundreds of comments. Some viewers loved the concept, some questioned the value of serving something so pricy to a picky pack of eaters.
