Some deride teenagers as good-for-nothing layabouts making no contribution to society; but that's forgetting their aptitude for emerging technologies, their sense of fun and their willingness to think outside the box. And while some may be looking for the easy way out, others are so self-assured they want you to lay down $150 a person to eat a single meal they're prepared. Such is the case with 15-year-old Flynn McGarry, a teen chef and recent cover subject of New York Times Magazine's food issue, who will put on a two-night pop-up restaurant in NYC this month called Eureka.

Flynn may be a precocious teen now but he actually started his much-written about supper club out of his home (read: his parent's home) in California when he was 12. Before that, he was just an average kid reading haute cuisine cookbooks and adopting sous vide cooking methods. McGarry mused about his future to the Times, saying he would "move to New York at 17, work at Eleven Madison Park or somewhere like it for a year, maybe a year and a half, and then start work on his restaurant by 19." You know, just average teen stuff.

Now McGarry is taking his talents to NYC, with a two night pop-up on May 19th and 20th at Creative Edge Parties. Tickets for the eight course tasting menu run $150 per person plus tax and gratuity. If you want the wine pairing it's another $60 or $20 for a non-alcoholic pairing; presumably, the water is free. Snag a reservation here and prepare for ultimate feelings of insignificance followed by crippling regret that you didn't follow your adolescent dream of a life on the stage.
