If you invited me to Daniel, known as one of NYC’s best restaurants, to treat me to a seven course tasting menu with five of my friends, I would be beyond thrilled.

If you make that same offer to a second grader? Not so much.

Well, maybe they’d be excited initially, but once the “smoked paprika cured hamachi with osteria caviar” was placed in front of them, their excitement would probably be replaced with something else. Disappointment? Horror? Rage? The extreme need for mac and cheese?

Daniel Boulud and the NY Times tried a little experiment and the results are both predictable and utterly adorable. They should thank their lucky stars they didn’t invite my daughter to the meal.

She would have burned that restaurant to the ground.
