Beltramo family, property owners of the Oasis, seek new operators for the restaurant
We’ve been asked to spread the word about Dan and Margaret Beltramo’s interest in maintaining the site as a restaurant rather than redevelop the property.
According to a city official who met with them, they are emotionally attached to the restaurant, recognize its importance to the community, and have expressed they sincerely wish it would have been possible to reach agreement with the Tougas family to keep them operating the restaurant. They indicated these families have worked together for decades.
They would like to maintain the site as a restaurant, with much of the interior currently kept in place, including all of the wood-carved booths. Dan indicates his father [Alex, the original Oasis owner] actually built those booths. Given that Tougas family is leaving the site, Dan is seeking new operators for the restaurant.
Anyone interested in operating the Oasis, should contact Jim Cogan, Menlo Park’s Economic Development Manager – JCCogan@menlopark.org – or City Council member Ray Mueller – Rdmueller@menlopark.org.
