So Sam Mason's Tailor is finally starting to kindof open at 525 Broome st. Mr. Mason is of course the renowned pastry chef from WD-50s. After all the hoopla we will be the ones dying to try his unusual creations. What's all the fuss about? "The big idea at Tailor: to blur preconceived notions of what a drinks/dinner/dessert experience should entail." (from UrbanDaddy). He is mixing things like foie gras with peanut butter. We are big fans of the whole salty/sweet idea, and while many think this place will fall on its ass after one month, we are going to be on the optimistic side. Eater posted the menu which is broken up in 3 categories: sweet dishes, salty dishes, and cocktails. At least we know the desserts and drinks will be okay (he took Even Freeman with him to run the drink menu).
