Sonata Sings a Pretty Tune

Craig LaBan sings a praising song to Mark Tropea, owner and chef of Sonata in Northern Liberties.

But if ever there was a higher purpose for our BYOB scene, this is it: a showcase for young talent where the food speaks for itself.

And Tropea, aided by his sharp sous-chef Krystal Weaver (once pastry chef at Brasserie Perrier), has been making the most of it, with an ambitious menu of artfully crafted dishes that manage to be at once thoroughly modern in technique and rooted in classic notions of flavor.
