Little Diner’s Crew is a dining club for kids between the ages of 4-12. We expand kids palates beyond mac-n-cheese and chicken fingers. Each month LDC hosts a unique dining experience at a different restaurant that allow kids to travel the world through food. Kids interact with chefs, taste different cuisines, rate each dish, learn how food is prepared, and appropriate dining etiquette.
