There are countless of NYC restaurants that are special, but the newly opened Eureka is in a league of its own.

The "perma pop-up" restaurant operates three days a week, featuring a 14-course tasting menu. While the culmination of a pop-up restaurant and a gourmet foodie experience definitely delivers what people are looking for, the most unique feature of Eureka is that it's run by 16-year-old chef Flynn McGarry.

McGarry began operating a supper club out of home at age 11 and five years later, he's moved out and opened his own restaurant—which is much more than most teens and adults can say for themselves. His signature culinary creations blend nostalgic childhood foods with grown-up flavors, such as a dish like "peanut Ritz crackers with foie gras terrine and sour cherry compote."
