Re: Adorable And Hateable

I'm going to dispute you on the adorable part. In fact, perhaps the most hateable part is that they seem to think it's adorable.

Because of course she knows.

The little girl is adorable, hater.

Seems a sweet kid, but, dear Lord, 'Four year old child turns out to be slightly fussy and prefers to eat food she can recognise.'

(Admittedly, the first food our son was weaned on was Chateubriand at the Hawksmoor, but there's a long story that makes that sound less objectionable...)

I can't tell if the little girl is adorable or not. They need to put a kitten in the same shot so I have a standard of reference.

It actually is a kitten. They used molecular gastronomy to make it look like a little girl.

Totes adorbs.

(Do people still say that? Or is that something people only said for about ten minutes a few years ago?)

I'm just going to come out and say what everybody is dancing around. If you didn't feed your child citrus-cured pacific yellowtail when they were a toddler, they'll never eat it when they are four and you've basically failed as a parent.

Which makes you worse than Hitler since he never failed as a parent.

I'm pretty swipl-y about what I feed our toddler, so ... not anxious.

Our son was weaned on the limes from old gin and tonics. Its possible we are bad parents.

I think this sort of caught on as a meme; anyway there was one where some fetching moppets were sent to Daniel to be cutely flummoxed by offal and mispronounce "sous vide" in adorable ways or whatever.

Zardoz loves the limes from cocktails. I try not to let them soak much first.

If you let them soak a little while, its easier to get the baby to go to sleep.

No one ever actually said "Totes adorbs", not even in the Valley. It was purely an ironic internet thing.

Has anyone sent a four-year-old to review Alinea? Because I'm thinking the "puddles of stuff smeared artfully across the table" concept would go over well with that demographic.

Another bit of evidence that taxes are waaay too low in the US.

Everybody who still eats or serves caviar is a monster in any case, so good on the little girl to refuse to participate in the extinction of one of the great fishes.

Send a four year old to review one of those in-the-dark restaurants.
