Very Advanced: Flynn McGarry
Our guest Flynn McGarry is a chef whose career started at the tender age of 11 in Los Angeles. Heralded as the “Justin Bieber of food” McGarry’s pop-up dinners in his parents’ house regularly sold out and garnered tons of press. Now 19, McGarry has opened Gem, his first restaurant in New York City, and he’s the subject of Chef Flynn, a documentary chronicling his unique upbringing, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year. During our chat, we peel back the layers to discuss all the big topics: dating, leftovers, being younger than your employees, and the cocaine side of the industry. We end with a blockbuster music quiz that focuses on the year 1998.
