Eureka Pop up restaurant @ Kava

We were very curious about Flynn McGarry’s popup restaurant Eureka.  McGarry is notable for having staged fine dining at a very young age (like a Doogie Houser meets Momofuku/Eleven Madison Park).  Eureka makes multiple month stints in Nyc & LA at shifting locations–this time at Kava (803 Washington st in nyc).  

The young chef below
