Later this month, Scottsdale residents will get a new destination for European cuisine when Sonata's Restaurant opens at 10050 North Scottsdale Road, south of the intersection of Scottsdale Road and Shea Boulevard. The restaurant will serve dishes from Lithuanian, German, Polish, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Russian, Spanish, French, Irish, and other European cuisines.
The restaurant takes its name from owner Sonata Molocajeviene Tuft, a Lithuanian-born Paradise Valley resident, whose personal recipes also inspired many of the menu items. The list will include everything from homemade dumplings with mushroom sauce to chicken Kiev.
Heading up the kitchen is chef Josh Bracher, whose name you may remember from when he opened Second Story Liquor Bar in Old Town Scottsdale as executive chef. His past experience includes time at Posh restaurant and Tanzy. Bracher graduated from Arizona Culinary Institute.
In addition to lunch and dinner, Sonata's will serve weekend brunch, which will include a European Bloody Mary and mimosa bar and specials like Hangover Soup. The restaurant will also offer the Restart Juice bar, where on-the-go diners can order freshly squeezed organic juices, smoothies, and Italian coffee, plus healthy “grab and go” items including salads, sandwiches, and a variety of European pastries, muffins, and cookies.
