What's Happening in:  East Passyunk Crossing 

Chef Townsend Wentz dishes on plans for 1623 E. Passyunk, elaborates on ‘wine-driven food’

Townsend Wentz, the pedigreed chef whose resume includes stints at French-influenced temples La Croix and the Four Seasons, says his plan for the former Sophia’s at 1623 E. Passyunk Ave. will be to focus on “wine-driven food.”
