Flynn McGarry Pops Up

Flynn McGarry Pops Up

We’ve been dying to eat 15-year-old Flynn McGarry’s food since we first caught wind of the dinners he was hosting in his mom’s house up in The Valley. McGarry, who dropped out of school because he was being bullied (in part, for carrying around French Laundry), has been in the kitchen ever since, working at Eleven Madison Park and Alma along the way. While he’s clearly picked up some tricks, this is no ordinary teen with a blow torch and a sous-vide. His food is hands-down sublime. He occasionally holds restaurant take-over events, and we lucked into a table earlier this week at L.A.’s Fifty Seven, where he turned out Beet Wellington with creamed kale and beet bordelaise, artichoke bloomed with herbs and cod, and tomato tartare, accented with pickles, pumpernickle, capers, and cured egg yolk. Quite simply, it was insane. (Plus: Check out that awesome head of hair!)
