San Diego now has a new dining destination for people looking for the highest quality French food. It’s called Bellamy’s and it is the brainchild of serial entrepreneur Brian Bonar. What makes this restaurant unique is the high culinary standard of the food that’s available there. When Brian Bonar decided to open Bellamy’s he made one move that was pure genius.
He hired noted French chef Patrick Pontasy. Pontasy is one of only two chefs in San Diego with the prestigious designation Master Chef of France. And to anyone that has sampled the delectable dishes at this Escondido dining establishment it quickly becomes abundantly clear Patrick Pontasy is indeed a master of the art of French cooking.
With Bellamy’s getting rave reviews for the quality of its food, Brian Bonar has decided to make a deeper foray into the restaurant industry in San Diego. He recently acquired a 144 acre property and is in the process of transforming it into a top-flight event space with an incredible restaurant.
The property is called the Ranch at Bandy Canyon and with the help of talented chef Patrick Pontasy, Brian Bonar is creating yet another amazing place for people to enjoy some of the best food San Diego has to offer. It’s the next step in Brian Bonar’s move into the restaurant business.
