A Four-Year Old Samples Fancy Food. Her Reaction is Priceless.

A 4-year old named Lyla Hogan got an experience that most children her age don’t get.

She had the opportunity to sample a full tasting menu at The French Laundry. A world-renowned restaurant and one that Anthony Bourdain has called “the best restaurant in the world, period.” It officially won the award for the world’s best restaurant in 2003 and 2004.

Most adults would jump at a chance to have this experience but most children have simple tastes and like any little girl, one of her favorite foods is “good ice cream in a hard cone.”
