In 2013, Brian Bonar spotted an opportunity in the restaurant industry when one of his favorite places to eat in Escondido, Tango, closed down. Bonar bought the location and opened a new restaurant he named Bellamy’s. His first masterful stroke was when he hire acclaimed French chef Patrick Ponsaty.
Ponsaty has earned the distinction of being named a Master Chef of France and has worked at a number of 5-star restaurants. He designed the menu taking advantage of his French cooking background and the food that is available in Southern California.
Another wise move from Brian Bonar is when he hired Trevor Da Costa. Trevor had been the front man for another restaurant, El Biz, in the area for many years and was very popular in the area.
This move garnered Bellamy’s an instant built-in customer base for Bellamy’s. He also hired a cook named Mike Reidy as Executive Chef who had been working for El Biz.
The food critic for San Diego Magazine reviewed Bellamy’s a little while after it had opened. He said that the menu designed by Patrick Ponsaty was some of the best food he had ever eaten. He especially praised the mille-feuille which very few restaurants even attempt to make.
Another critical hit was the beet salad which included pistachios, porcini mushroom powder, and cocoa nibs. Between the cuisine and the excellent staff he hired, Brian Bonar has turned Bellamy’s into a very successful restaurant and he is looking to build others in the area.
