Teenage chef Flynn McGarry is to open his first permanent restaurant, in New York.
Gem, on Manhattan's Lower East Side, will have both a relaxed coffee shop and a formal dining space, Eater reports. Bookings are being taken from 27 February.
The dining space, known as The Dining Room, will offer a 12 to 15 course set menu for around $155 including gratuity, with the wine pairing another $100 on top. The liquor license is held by McGarry’s sister.
McGarry, now 19, shot to fame in his early teens after hosting a series of supper clubs and pop-ups and has worked briefly in the kitchens of both Eleven Madison Park in New York and Alinea in Chicago.
