Since opening its doors, Beaumont’s continues to breathe new life into the community, improving the growth and enhancement of local businesses and representing Bird Rock as an exciting and diverse neighborhood. Owners Megan and David Heine, of Brockton Villa Restaurant in La Jolla, share a profound thirst for maintaining the immediate community and anchoring the life of Bird Rock in this hidden jewel by the sea.
