Malarkey moves in on Austin and Sunset Blvd; Tango now Bellamy's; Calypso Cafe bought


Fresh off the opening of Searsucker Scottsdale, the Enlightened Hospitality trio—chef Brian Malarkey, nightlife empresario James Brennan and designer Thomas Schoos—will continue their national expansion plans with Searsucker Austin set to open in June of next year. Birdies also say they'll be opening another one of their concepts in a marqius Sunset Boulevard hotel soon... In Escondido, Tango was bought by Brian Bonar, who also owns bucolic wedding spot The Ranch at Bandy Canyon. They've now changed the name to Bellamy's, and pulled in former El Bizcocho sous chef Mike Reidy to helm the kitchen. The plan is for small plates/lounge food, with all produce from Chino Farms. Bonar also plans to create one of California's most ambitious steakhouses at The Ranch in the next year or two... In Leucadia, Calypso Cafe has new owners. The group's tentative name for the new restaurant is Priority Public, with plans to open in spring 2013...
