Watch These 4-Year-Old Kids Hilariously Review 5-Star Restaurants

food

If you find the recent culinary trend toward fussy locavore cuisine to be annoying, your palate may have more in common with a 4-year-old than anyone who’s normally paid to review restaurants. In that case, San Francisco-based online mag The Bold Italic‘s semi-regular series of the city’s best restaurants reviewed through the facial expressions of 4 year olds is for you. It’s as adorable as it sounds and probably even less insightful, but considering how hard tables are to come by at these places, it’s still more than you might otherwise know about them.
