Brian Bonar’s Growing Restaurant Empire

Bellamy chef Patrick Ponsaty has begun to cater at The Ranch at Bandy Canyon. Beautiful Escondido, CA is the site for both of these high end operations. Brian Bonar, owner of both operations, has been a driving force in improving the cuisine at the Ranch, and supports Ponsaty in his use of traditional culinary techniques.

The Ranch at Bandy Canyon features a cave for the storage of Ponsaty’s vintage Armagnac brandy. Farm to table cuisine is the order of the day there. Bellamy as a restaurant is low-key enough that the wizardry performed by chef Ponsaty can come across as a pleasant surprise for diners.

The Ranch at Bandy Canyon is evocative of classic European countryside. Diners know they can expect the very best, and they get it.
