Brian Bonar came to San Diego with the hope of opening restaurants that people would love, but he wanted to fit into a community that has its own style and culture. There is a great downtown area in Escondido that houses his Bellamy restaurant, and there is a ranch area where he is creating a place to hold banquets or parties. Someone who came from Scotland to San Diego has to get used to the area, but Mr. Bonar has decided to go all in for the San Diego way of life.
Modern Luxury has it that Escondido has a lot of people who are used to the old restaurants that sit in the downtown area, and they like to see places that have names like those of the people who started them. Mr. Bonar has no relation to a Bellamy, but he wanted to use a name that matched with what all the other people in the area have in that part of town.

His restaurant is really like a European bistro, and he wants to have a lot of really nice food that people would expect to find in a place that has a waiting list and a maitre d’ in a tuxedo. Mr. Bonar has his excellent executive chef at Bellamy right now, but that chef is going to move out to the ranch when the time comes. The empire that Mr. Bonar created is going to keep moving around San Diego, and he probably has another place in mind that people in San Diego have not heard of yet.

There is a lot that can be done with the ranch where Mr. Bonar is building, but he is cementing his reputation has a man who makes great food at Bellamy. A review that came out for the restaurant praised it for the food that was made just for a European bistro, and Mr. Bonar has kept the menu nearly the same to make sure that all his customers get the things that they have grown used to over time. He has regulars, and he charms people who come into Escondido just for his food.

Southern California is a really different place because it has its own culture and community that likes to move slower than everyone else. That is something that Mr. Bonar has taken to by taking people even farther out of San Diego. It is easy to get around the area, and people love to drive to Escondido to see his Bellamy restaurant, and he will probably have more people coming out to his ranch for events. His Scottish roots have been moved successfully to San Diego, and they are creating the best food that the denizens of the area have ever had.
