Can we be like children sampling new and foreign flavours?

One Saturday afternoon last month, six second graders from P.S. 295 in Brooklyn got a head start on the fine-dining life when they visited the acclaimed French restaurant Daniel.

Just watch this; children are the best.

In a previously unexplored environment, are we like them in any way? unlike them altogether?

First observations:

They are honest. Some are carefully adventurous. Some of them share their reactions and opinions. They form a little micro-community with different personalities. ┬áMany of them delight in the experiences – both bad and good. They look at each other to compare reactions. They laugh. They bond.

Some background.
