Paragary’s Bar & Oven, Sacramento
A few friends and I recently decided that we were long overdue for a ladies’ night out. Feeling like we’d slipped into the “come home from work and veg out on the couch” routine, we needed an excuse to get dressed up, treat ourselves to a nice meal and glass of wine out, and of course, gossip the night away. So, when I got an email about Paragary’s Bar and Oven’s iEat Loyalty Program exclusive, I knew it’d be the perfect place for us to try out.
For $20 per person, we were each able to indulge in a very generous 3-course dinner. The only downfall was that there wasn’t a single thing on the menu that I didn’t want to try! We quickly solved that problem by each ordering something different and sharing bites – one of my favorite dining techniques.
For starters, the potato and leek soup was perfectly creamy and so deliciously filling that I had to cut myself off half way through the bowl to save room for my entrée! Once our main courses of beef short ribs, grilled boneless half chicken with polenta and grilled asparagus, and linguine and clams arrived, they immediately started making their way around the table.
Being a huge fan of seafood, and clams in particular, I was not the least bit surprised that the linguine and clams ended up being my favorite dish. Don’t be mistaken, though – there wasn’t a single piece of food left on our table by the end of the night. Needless to say, we were very impressed with each dish!
For dessert, we each opted for the Crème Brulee, but soon found out that there was only one left in the restaurant. To apologize for the inconvenience (and probably to avoid a fight over the last dessert!), the staff was kind enough to open up the full dessert menu to us. And oh, what a dessert menu it was! To put it simply, there’s just no picking favorites between the Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake, the Crème Brulee and the Seasonal Fruit Warm Crisp.
Although the $20 3-Course Dinner deal is now over, I can’t wait to go back and try out the rest of the menu. Whether you’re looking for a good date spot, a nice place for a ladies’ night out, or just some good food, Paragary’s Bar and Oven is a definite must try.
