The restaurant is in a charming 1880’s structure that has been recreated to mimic a temple or gastronomy. They tend to stick to lyrical cooking, as it is what Ponsaty is known best for.
He is a soft-spoken Frenchman that is capable of celebrity status, but he prefers to live low key. He loves being the master chef cooking in a small restaurant that he can turn into something great. At times, he feels like he is one of the Beatles playing at a local roadhouse.
He wants to make the menu both approachable yet inspired. So what kind of foods do they serve? Well, how does Farm beet sorbet with watercress and goat cheese sound? Or, one can dine on mushrooms and sea scallops with carpaccio that is truffle scented. When asked how he describes his food, his only comment is “French.”
The eatery is close to the Ranch at Bandy Canyon. His long-term goal is to turn the 144-acre property into a classy event space that includes an upscale place to eat. The marquee chef is important to pull off this big feat. The top-notch staff is the key to making this restaurant serve some of the best food in the area.
Brian Bonar is a man who works hard at all of his many endeavors. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty, nor is he detoured by what the public might say. There have been some tongues wagging at the thoughts of him taking a rustic place like Bellamy and turning it into a 4-star restaurant, yet that has not stopped him from seeing the full vision.
When others may see a hole-in-the-wall, he sees opportunity. This has pretty much been the pattern over his life.
Being from Scotland, he wanted to bring food that had more of a European flair to the people of California. If anyone knows eateries, it is Boner. This is not his first time at the fair and certainly, will not be his last. It seems everything he touches turns to gold.
