The good news is that pass or fail, everyone will get to have one of the best lunches around.

Flynn McGarry is 15 years old and already dominating the world of cooking. In addition to apprenticing at Alma in downtown Los Angeles, McGarry’s monthly supper club, EUREKA, has developed a cult following.

With McGarry as it’s executive chef, EUREKA serves up to 40 guests and features anywhere from 10 to 14 courses of a progressive American tasting menu created by McGarry.
