Bellamy’s is one of Brian Bonar’s, the Scottish businessman, world class eateries, which he has been starting in San Diego area. Bonar has sourced the best talent in San Diego hence ensuring originality and quality of his dishes.
Some of the staffs were sourced from Bonar’s long time favorite restaurant in San Diego, El Bizocho. They include Trevor Da Costa and cook Mike Reidy, who is now the Executive Chef of Bellamy’s. Traditional cuisines include Mushroom Ravioli, Saffron Panna Cotta, and Parsley Risotto
According to Troy Johnson, from outside his expectations were not met, the décor of the Bellamy is just a name on a trap and yester year’s walls and booths.
The corn soup, the liquid silk blended with cream with espelette peppers, is served cold with ginger, lime juice, cilantro, and olive. The parsley-cream risotto perfectly cooked salmon, and a shaved summer truffle made crunchy with sea salt. Everything was just perfect and amazing.
