Dine Downtown is one of our favorite January activities, proof here. Every year, Downtown Sac makes our foodie dreams come true with Dine Downtown, a dining experience that gives locals the opportunity to enjoy meals from some of Sacramento’s best restaurants at a fraction of the normal cost. One needs a damn good reason to indulge in a 3-course meal (or a series of 3-course meals, let’s be real) just after the holidays. Dining at Ella for $35 is validation enough–we’re in. So when our friends at Downtown Sac asked us to preview some of this year’s menus, we didn’t hesitate.

Since the Summer of 2015, when Paragary’s reopened, it secured a spot on a few of our “best” lists: Sacramento’s Best Patios and Best Happy Hour in Sacramento. Add Dine Downtown Previews to that list because Paragary’s was one of our first choices when it came time to choose which menus to preview. Paragary’s takes a lot of pride in what they present on the plate, as they should. Each dish is carefully thought out and beautifully executed. With 3 choices for both the second and third course, this menu is a perfect option for those with particular tastes or those who simply like options.
