Aside from steering big corporations like Dalrada Financial Corporation into greater successful heights, he has been striving to create his business empire. Bellamy’s, a restaurant based in Escondido, is one of Bonar’s business ventures in San Diego County. This restaurant has been a home to one of the best cooks in the country, Patrick Ponsaty.
Chef Patrick Ponsaty is a French native. He is one of the only two individuals to attain the highly coveted designation of Master Chef of France. Before joining Bellamy’s, he worked as a chef at the Rancho Bernardo Inn where he helped Gavin Kaysen rise to prominence.
Brian Bonar has done a commendable job of ensuring that the staff at the Bellamy’s is well-qualified and experienced for the job.

As part of a larger venture, Bonar aims at transforming the Bandy Canyon into a four-star event location that will feature a signature restaurant. With Ponsaty as the chef, his goals are bound to come to reality. Currently, Ponsaty is helping to design his kitchen at the ranch in a suitable way before it becomes his official workplace.
