NEW YORK CITY — A group of second graders was treated to a luxurious meal most people will only dream of experiencing.
The New York Times Magazine invited six second graders from P.S. 295 to experience a seven-course tasting meal at renowned restaurant Daniel, and asked the director of an Academy Award nominated documentary to capture their reactions. The tasting meal typically costs $220 per person.
The video is undeniably charming, with the children’s uncensored feedback and delight shown alongside the chef-owner’s attention to detail and desire to share fine culinary treats with a younger generation. Enjoyable quotes from the kids include, “Why am I eating soap right now?” and “It looks like a little forest!”
Jeffrey Blitz, who directed the documentary “Spellbound,” put together the short film and it can be viewed for free online.
