Brian Bonar brings in Big Time France

In an article by Troy Johnson over at San Diego Magazine, Escondido’s bistro Bellamy’s takes center stage. And every drop of it is nothing but praise for the food.

Escondido still maintains it’s age-old homeliness, like any small town in the US that hasn’t quite gotten hit by the sweep of modernization. What it did get hit by was good food and a French Master Chef.

After earning his doctorate at Staffordshire University, Brian Bonar found that wherever he turned his attention, he excelled. This eventually placed him as Chairman of Dalrada Financial Corporation and CEO of Trucept Inc, but then Bonar turned his attention to the world of fine dining and good food.

And he decided to do it in beautiful Escondido. Bonar picked up the unfortunate restaurant Tango and rechristened it Bellamy’s, and then he went hunting for some of the best staff he could find. He found some of them at El Bizcocho, one of his own favorite restaurants which had recently decided to let go of it’s dedicated employees.

Bonar also picked up Master Chef Patrick Ponsaty.

But Ponsaty’s stay at Bellamy’s is a temporary affair. A ranch in nearby Bandy Canyon, over one hundred and forty acres that Bonar has mind to transform, is to be be Ponsaty’s home. Eventually a signature restaurant will sit there, complete with a kitchen that Ponsaty himself designed. For the time being, he establishes himself in Bellamy’s with El Bizcocho’s former Mike Reidy, and together they bring fine dining to Escondido.

With Brian Bonar putting it all together and bringing people like Ponsaty and Reidy into his circle, it goes without saying that Bellamy’s is already well on it’s way to being famous, though it would never make it there without the customers.

Bonar hasn’t forgotten them; while the French may be the best cooks in the world, he knows that some people have different tastes or want to try new things.

Deere developed her background in fashion design at FIT in New York City. She began designing, creating and selling her own fashion designs on ebay and developed quite the customer base in a relatively short time. Deere was inspired to branch out from fashion design into cosmetics manufacturing when she was searching for the perfect shades to match her own outfits. She came up with a loss because the mainstream makeup industry was primarily focused on neutral shades and pallets, which Deere thought did not adequately express her true creativity and authentic self. Deere wanted to see if she could create her own version of bold, exciting makeup. At first, Deere planned to just wear the makeup for herself, but it quickly became a widespread hit. Deere launched Lime Crime back in 2008 to give her followers the same fun, inspired options that Deere came to love herself in creating and choosing her own makeup. The cosmetics line was an instant hit and continues to be an incredibly profitable company today.

As a successful woman in business, Deere says that the most important lesson to take away from her success is that following your dreams and passions first and profits second is the real recipe for sustainable success. Because Deere is so passionate about the cosmetics products she creates, she is constantly inspired to think of new and fun products to share with her customers. Her excitement about the Lime Crime makeup line is contagious, and her customers love to follow her new designs and keep up with Deere in social media and beyond. Deere is always accessible to her followers and loves to hear feedback about her line.

The place is still dominated by old world influences with a country style ambiance. It is where the old-fashioned elites gather for the day. Today, we will be going over why Brain Bonar’s Bellamy stands out above all others according to Dalrada.

Brian Bonar and Bellamy’s

Bellamy Restaurant is owned by a Scottish businessman Brian Bonar. Before he established Bellamy’s, he was just a simple fan a similarly great restaurant named El Bizcocho at Rancho Bernardo Inn. His love for this superb dining place led him to the establishment of Bellamy’s.

When El Bizcocho happened to reorganized itself, Brian Bonar took the opportunity to absorb the crme de la crme of El Biscocho and these were the staff including a renowned chef Patrick Ponsaty who was given the title Master Chef of French. He was one of the only 2 people in San Diego who had this title.

A WhitePages article said that Brian Bonar opened an event place near the Ranch at Bandy Canyon. He established this event place with a signature restaurant in it so he established Bellamy’s and let Patrick Ponsaty man the restaurant.

Bellamy Restaurant is termed by many as “The Hidden City.” San Diego Magazine published an article on grand cuisine which mentioned that “Bellamy’s is some of the best food in San Diego, served by a top-notch staff.”

Patrick Ponsaty and His Career

If there is a reason why Brian Bonar is a great fan of El Bizcocho, it is because he is actually a fan of its great chef Patrick Ponsaty. Ask about his style of cuisine and he would only say it only in one word – “French.” He worked at the former El Bizcocho at Rancho Bernardo Inn as executive chef. He used to coach an award-winning group of talents that ranked third in the world in the National Trophy of Cuisine and Pastry.

Currently, he is still the soul of Bellamy’s where he considers home. On the other hand, he is now planning to start his own venture and build a new name for dining place of his own.

Luxury Condo Sales Prices Up But Beneath Lies A Sluggish Market

According to a recent Douglas Elliman Real Estate Report the average sales price of a home in the borough of Manhattan is now at around $1.1 million dollars. This represents an increase of about 17% over last year. This statistic would have you believe that the housing market, especially the luxury one is doing well when the opposite is in fact true. To understand this one must delve a little deeper into the figures to understand that the market is now inflated in Manhattan.

The housing market saw a frenzy of newly constructed and available units under contract during the first quarter of 2016 which includes the months of January, February and March. This provided the first artificial boost to the Manhattan luxury real estate market. The second artificial boost was provided by contracts that were agreed upon and written as far back as 2015 and even 2014 that would begin in 2016. Take away the first boost which was new units being quickly snatched up, and the second boost which are old contracts maturing now and you will see that the sales market for new luxury developments is starting to level off.

Another figure which highlights that sales are tapering off is that the fact that newly constructed apartment listings fell by a total of 44% when compared to last year. This is despite the fact that a total of 5,500 new apartment units were constructed in Manhattan last year. Agents are now purposely keeping units of the market now, as they realize that the real estate market is now sluggish and bloated. The resale market in Manhattan however continues to remain strong and see growth. For more information on the cooling of the luxury housing market in New York check out this article on Crain’s New York Business.

Andrew Heiberger of Town Residential has the following to say about the inflated market right now. “Smart sellers have already made adjustments to their listing to reflect the real price of units on the market now.” The CEO goes on to say “that more developers and real estate agents will begin to follow suit and lower prices when they realize that the market has been inflated for some time now.”

Town Residential is a real estate firm that specializes in luxury housing in New York City. The firm has a total of four offices in Manhattan and teams that offer expertise on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis. Town Residential has recently been lauded as one of the top luxury real estate firms in New York City due to its outstanding services and approach.

President of Devco Responds to Questions Concerning CRDA $20 Million Loan

DEVCO, a non-profit urban real estate development corporation and developer of the Heldrich Project was questioned about repayment on a loan provided by Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). The $120 million project was financed by CRDA, tax-exempt bond financing, State of New Jersey Grants, private equity, and New Jersey Redevelopment Authority Loan. CDRA contributed $20 million to the Heldrich project fund and hasn’t received payments in the amount of $1 million, according to the Press of Atlantic City (February 29, 2016). Middlesex County Improvement Authority failed to make payments, including interest and principle. Christopher Paladino, the President of Devco responded to questions, providing reasonable facts about the economy and loan repayment.

Middlesex County Improvement Authority neglected to pay approximately $7 million for five years. Paladino is aware of the repayment arrearage and assures the Press of Atlantic City the loan will be paid within two years. He directed the corporation and organized the

$20 million loan to help finance the Heldrich project. Middlesex County owns the Heldrich Hotel and hasn’t generated enough revenue to pay on the loan. When the hotel opened its doors to the general public in 2007, it was during the beginning of an economic downturn in the United States.

Now that the Heldrich Hotel is completed and operating in New Brunswick Development Corporation, Paladino is sure the hotel will eventually pay all its debts. He said that economic influences had an enormous effect on the hotel inability to pay on the loan. Heldrich Hotel was obligated to pay its unionized employees, real estate taxes, and maintain the property for quests. Some of the most recent projects Devco developed are Heldrich, Rutgers Public Safety Building, Gateway Transit Village, and Child Health Institute of New Jersey.
