About Chef Flynn McGarry

  • Flynn McGarry began cooking at the age of 10, started a supper club operating out of his mother’s home at 12, and staged in top restaurants in Los Angeles, New York and Seattle before he was 16. In 2014, he was the cover story of the Food and Drink issue of The New York Times Magazine. His impressive resume includes stages at renowned restaurants like Eleven Madison Park, Alinea, Next, Geranium, and Maaemo.
  • In 2018, at the age of 19, he opened his first permanent restaurant, Gem, in New York City's Lower East Side neighborhood, which received a glowing two-star review from The New York Times. In November of that same year, he was the subject of a documentary called “Chef Flynn” that debuted in theaters nationwide. In 2022 McGarry opened Gem wine, his idea of a local neighborhood wine bar.

About Melissa Rodriguez

  • After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park, Melissa Rodriguez started her professional culinary career with Elaine Bell Catering and at Oceana. In 2006, she was hired as a line cook at Daniel Boulud’s flagship Restaurant Daniel, where she quickly rose the ranks to sous chef. After five years at Daniel, Melissa joined the team at Del Posto where she was soon promoted to Chef de Cuisine. Two years later, Melissa was named Executive Chef, making her the first woman at the helm of a restaurant awarded four stars by the New York Times.
  • Like most New York restaurants, Del Posto closed in March 2020. In the summer of 2021, Melissa partnered with Restaurateur Jeff Katz–with whom she worked for almost a decade at Del Posto to acquire the space previously occupied by Del Posto at 85 Tenth Avenue. In 2022, the team opened a trio of restaurants in that space: a fine Italian restaurant called Al Coro; a subterranean cocktail bar called Discolo; and a pizza restaurant next door called Mel’s. Just months after it opened, Al Coro was awarded two stars from the Michelin Guide. In 2023 Melissa and Jeff partnered with the global restaurant group, Tao Hospitality to conceptualize and open a new wood grilled base restaurant and a members club.
