Children's Day at The Four Seasons

It was Children's Day at the Four Seasons in New York and the deal was this: kids eat free.

Really. And not from some kiddie menu with the usual mac-n-cheese and chicken fingers. We're talking stuff like steak au poivre, which normally adds $56 to the tab.

"Their choices included the $28 sweet corn ravioli with prawns in summer truffle bouillon and the $28 beef tartare,"  Glenn Collins wrote in a fun New York Times piece last week.

The deal applied to kids 5 to 14 years old who were accompanied by a paying adult diner. (No more than two pint-sized freeloaders per grown-up.)

I know Owl Meat was just lamenting how "Baltimore comes late and ponderously to most things," but I say this is one dining trend worth shamelessly aping.

What a kick it would be to take the kids -- mine started kindergarten and second grade today -- out for real fine dining without going broke.
