LAST NIGHT IN BEL AIR
The Bel Air Bar & Grill on Sepulveda at Moraga is back, and therefore so are Allen Matkins senior partner Tony Natsis and wife Demetra, whom we snapped last night outside. The 144-seat neighborhood institution, opened in 1999 (although other restaurants have stood there since the '50s), was closed for major renovation over 18 months until last November. Tony and Demetra calculate theyve been coming about once a month to the spot for the 22 years theyve lived in Bel Air.
The owner remains Susan Disney Lord, Roy Disneys niece, so maybe that accounts for the magical dcorthis is a full wall of glass at the entry. Tony has been doing so many real estate deals in red hot San Francisco lately, we expect even these cool new digs seemed appealingly down-home.
