Ponsaty’s Brunch is truly one of a kind.  Before arriving at this gem of a restaurant, the drive took us on a road that led us to a beautiful, secluded area to one of the wealthiest locations in the nation, Rancho Santa Fe. During our trip to the restaurant, my husband and I felt as though we were in a completely different world. The scenery was breathtaking and so relaxing. The anticipation of experiencing Ponsaty’s brunch was creating a much-anticipated arrival for the both of us.

Ponsaty’s welcomes couples and families to dine in its elegant main dining room; or in their casual front and back patios that offer a view that is uplifting. During our visit, we couldn’t pass up on the view. The weather was perfect, so we decided to make our way to the patio where we enjoyed the view of the town and conversations with locals.

During our visit at Ponsaty’s, we appreciated the responsibly sourced cuisine that showcased its classical French and Spanish flavors, that focused on the Basque region of France and Spain. Ponsaty’s has created a menu of locally sourced meats and produce, which I’m certain guests will enjoy. The oysters were so fresh and clean. We were told they had been prepared a couple hours prior to our visit and you could definitely taste the freshness. From the bloody mary to the braised short ribs crepes, the taste of every bite was amazing.

The new restaurant boasts an elegant indoor dining room adorned with chandeliers by Jonathan Adler and Schonbeck; booths upholstered with custom French tufted leather and a private, intimate seating area that can accommodate up to six guests. The main dining room also features seating options ranging from romantic tables for two, to custom burl wood tables complemented by custom faux-alligator chairs by designer Laurence Solc. Front and back patios provide a more casual dining experience perfect for families, where guests can order a selection of signature flatbreads and other small tapas-style plates. The front patio also features an herb garden, where Ponsaty will grow herbs for use in his signature dishes.

Ladies will appreciate the extravagant bathroom that awaits them once they enter. It truly is breathtaking.
