About the Chef and Restaurant

"At The Bellport I go for the big taste," says Taylor Alonso,
"nothing subtle, nothing hidden."

European-trained Cordon Bleu Chef Taylor Alonso and his wife, Patricia Trainor set their sights on Bellport after years in Manhattan, England, and Washington, D.C. At first, Chef Alonso's presentation's of food appear to be simple, but with closer study, Alonso's dishes reveal his talent. It is a great chef who makes an actually complex dish look simple, appealing to the eye, and of utmost importance - great tasting. Alonso accomplishes all three.

The restaurant is located in its namesake town of Bellport. It is decorated with the art collected over the years by Taylor and Patricia. The decor is instantly recognizable as sprightly, airy, and enormously receptive. The culinary offerings are countrified, yet presented with flair. From time to time, artist friends show their work at this unpretentious and casual restaurant.

The Bellport's culinary delights have also been featured at The Great Chef's of Long Island Annual Benefits as well as being featured in House Beautiful, Victoria, Self, and Country Home magazines.
