Second Graders and the $220 Meal

The New York Times Magazine sent a group of second graders to Daniel, a two-star Michelin restaurant in Manhattan, for a seven course prix fixe tasting menu that goes for $220 a person.

While paprika smoked cured hamachi with ossetra caviar wasn’t a huge hit with the under-8 crowd, the overall result was charming and hilarious.

P.S. These kids are also about a million times better behaved than my own. One more reason I will NOT be taking them to Daniel any time soon.
