It’s hump day and we could all use a mid-week pick-me-up. Why not spend 10-minutes on dose of adorable? In this video by the Detroit Free Press, restaurant critic Mark Kurlyandchik treats six local second graders to a meal at Restaurant of the Year pick Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails. The mission: to see if everyone really can feel comfortable eating at Chartreuse. Kids, of course, are ruthlessly honest when it comes to sharing their opinions and freely let lose their critiques of the meal through facial expressions, empty and full plates, and remarks.
The day’s menu includes the much-touted Recovery Park salad, steak poke with chili-spiced potato chips, the fan-favorite twice-cooked egg, shrimp and grits, Vernors-braised pork belly, and strawberry mousse with chocolate ganache. The video is clearly an homage to the popular video published in The New York Times Magazine's Food issue in 2014 that brought six second graders from Brooklyn to dinner at Daniel Boulud's eponymous restaurant for a seven-course tasting menu (It's also exceptionally cute).
