Any adult food critic can give a balanced, articulate critique of a restaurant; yet here at The Bold Italic, we instead continue to take adorable, illiterate four-year-olds to fancy restaurants for the most honest, least useful food reviews in the world.

I'm with her! I wouldn't have ordered, let alone tried, most of those things! Plain and simple is fine for me and any food that makes a child cry is not something I am likely going to want to try! She was adorable though, the best thing in the entire review was her.

I don't think the choice of restaurant was the best. Why subject a child to try new things in public for the satisfaction of others. I always encouraged my kids to try new things but always at home where they were comfortable.

Read the COMMENTS underneath the article - some good issues brought up.
This is a pricey restaurant - apparently the cost of the meal was $120 - and it's kindof a waste, some said, to set a $120 meal in front of a kid, that she just spits out. Of course, it is assumed that the parents or somebody eats the rest of the food. But, it sure is skimpy for that price! It is a "food as art" kind of thing.
There are a number of different opinions given about hunger, hungry kids, guilt, affluence, having fun, etc. Worth reading the Comments.

Agree that a fancy restaurant like Plum won't cater to a 4-yr-old child's simple, and limited, tastes. Would be curious what a teen would think of all this...they know it all and aren't afraid to tell everyone. Doubt it could pass muster. Thanks for the fun, Carrie.

Noted with thanks Carrie.
This is hilarious, having a 4 year old sweet little girl as a food critic, At least she liked the bread!

What meal did she have at this restaurant? Regardless, it does not look too appetizing.
