About PRG

Paragary Restaurant Group

PRG has been recognized and respected throughout Northern California for its unique brands, consistent quality, and maverick restaurant concepts for decades. Starting in 1969 at the age of 22, Randy Paragary opened his first establishment, a bar named Parapow Palace, at the corner of 30th & O Streets in Midtown Sacramento. In 1974, Paragary opened his first restaurant, an Italian eatery named The Arbor. Paragary’s Bar and Oven opened in 1983 and marked the first wood-fired pizza in all of Sacramento and the official launch of Paragary Restaurant Group. Owned and operated by Randy Paragary, wife Stacy and Executive Chef Kurt Spataro, PRG remains based in California’s capitol city. PRG operates 14+ stores, including Paragary’s Bar & Oven, Cafe Bernardo (four in Sacramento, one in Davis), Esquire Grill, Hock Farm Craft & Provisions, Centro Cocina Mexicana, Bernardo Bar, Berkley Bar, Monkey Bar, KBAR, and R15 Bar.

PRG provides guests a combination of food, service and atmosphere that is true to each concept, high quality, and consistency. PRG enhances the dining experience by using the freshest and finest ingredients; produce, meat and seafood are delivered each morning from local vendors, most of which is organic and sustainably farmed. Menus change based upon seasonal availability. Breads and desserts are baked fresh at a private Paragary’s Bakery and delivered daily. In addition to fully stocked bars, PRG offers comprehensive selections of wines.
