A sixteen-year-old culinary arts mastermind by name of Flynn McGarry will be opening his first restaurant called: Eureka, in New York City. His business is said to be opened three days a week in West Village, presenting customers with a 14-course menu.
The young genius was first introduced to the food arena when he was 12 years old. He established a miniature dinner club, which was named Eureka, in California, out of his mom’s residence. Eureka started as an enjoyment hobby of cooking for his mom’s companions. This project started attracting additional people.
At the age of thirteen, McGarry began working at Ray’s and Stark Bar at LACMA as a learner under Chef Kris Morningstar and other famous chefs. As one, Eureka proceeded serving 14 course meals to 20 guests. The popular dinner created pop-ups in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City. McGarry was highlighted on The New York Times, Zagat and Time Magazine last year because of his inspiring work.
“Eureka will serve McGarry’s signature dishes such as the peanut Ritz crackers with foie gras terrine and sour cherry compote. Others will include sea-water-brined sea urchin with carrot cremeaux and coffee-pickled carrots,” said an anonymous person.
Flynn also has a YouTube channel where he hosts shorts filmed by his mother, Meg McGarry. He started this channel when he was eleven years old, and documents many different culinary techniques. His channel has over 1,000 subscribers and 160,000 channel views. Although his culinary passion is a priority, he still manages to keep his focus on school. He stated that, “To open a restaurant I obviously won’t be going to college,” he said, “but I don’t enjoy school anyway. It’s a win-win situation for me. I’ve found exactly what I love doing so I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.”
