Q: What do we need to think about when serving children? Should they get a separate menu?

A: "Children are guests, too!," says Charlie Palmer, chef at New York City's Metrazur, Aureole and Asta restaurants. "I think that it's worth the extra time and effort to cater to their needs. Let your caterer whip up a few simple dishes that young palates will love, but can still be formal, like a simple soup (hold the spices!), a delicious four-cheese ravioli for the main course, and ice cream for dessert."
