Gem is a restaurant by Flynn McGarry located in the Lower East Side.
The Dining Room serves a 12 to 15 course menu to two seatings of 12 guests Tuesday through Saturday.
“[Flynn McGarry’s] cooking is nuanced, his plating is often lyrical and the flavors, at least this spring and summer, have been delicate, subtle and very fresh. The vegetables and fruits he uses in profusion look and taste as if they had dropped off the vine right on to the hand-spun, earth-toned ceramic dishes.”
