Pastry chef Sam Mason, who opened OddFellows ice cream in 2013, and before that, worked on many other ventures (including time at Michelin-starred WD~50), has something new planned. Sweet Graffiti, a 350-square-foot dessert spot will serve around 10 yeasted doughnuts in flavors like cherry and miso; beet chocolate; and peanut lemongrass. The new spot is a venture between Mason and chef Franklin Becker (Press Club Grill, Point Seven) and Stephen Loffredo, a hospitality operator (Point Seven, Coral Omakase). It’s heading for 1260 Broadway, East 32 Street, March 2024. In the meantime, you can get his desserts at Becker’s restaurants.
