About PRG

Paragary Restaurant Group

PRG has been recognized and respected for decades throughout Northern California for its unique brands, consistent quality, and maverick restaurant concepts. 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 Sacramento and the official launch of Paragary Restaurant Group. Owned and operated by Randy Paragary, wife Stacy Paragary 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 & ProvisionsCentro 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, while maintaining high quality and consistency. A strong relationship with local farms and vendors, built over the past three decades, allows the chefs and bartenders to consistently create seasonal menus using the freshest ingredients possible. PRG also operates it’s own bakery, which provides fresh breads, desserts and pastas to all the locations.
