17-Year-Old Chef to Open New York Pop-Up

The controversial teenager, Flynn McGarry, is back once again with a new pop-up restaurant at Kava in The West Village, New York.

McGarry shot to fame after launching a supper club in his home when he was just 11. His Eureka pop-up launched in 2015 when he was just 16 and his 12-course, $120 menu caused quite the debate online.

Many commenters at the time predicted the rapid demise of what had to be a fad but now, aged 17, McGarry is back with an eight seat counter dining experience costing $160.

Speaking to Grub Street, McGarry said early menu ideas include “sea urchin with carrots and coffee, poached oysters with fresh tofu and potato skins, and “an aged beet.”

The pop-up will run for six months and tickets will go on sale September 20th.

Below is a copy of one of McGarry’s previous Eureka menus.
