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.
