Sam Mason Plans ‘Sophisticated and Mature’ Park Slope Restaurant


With the April 27 premiere of Dinner With the Band looming, Sam Mason tells Fork in the Road that he’ll likely open a restaurant in Park Slope sometime this year. “Everyone over there seems very nurturing of their restaurants and bars,” he says. “They have kids but still like to have a good time; they're still young.” The top secret project will be like Tailor but “a lot more intimate ... I want to do something sophisticated and mature.” Could we be looking at the city’s first molecular-gastronomy kids’ menu?

Update: Speaking of kids, check out this amazing baby photo of Sam I Am.
