I recently got a sneak peek of Paragary’s winter menu, and it’s filled with all the seasonal flavors you look forward to during this time of year. Butternut squash on their famous woodfired pizza, citrus in all kinds of spiced cocktails, entrees splashed with apples. The menu changes constantly to reflect what’s in season, so there’s never a dull moment.
At the preview event, a bunch of us bloggers and photographers gathered to taste pizza, cocktails, porkchop, and desserts. The Paragary’s team is so friendly and knowledgable, and we even got to learn a little history about the restaurant from Randy Paragary himself. Apparently Paragary’s has one of the oldest wood-fired ovens in the state. There aren’t many left, and you can taste the difference.
The standouts for me were the Blood Orange Margarita, the Smoked Trout with avocado and beets, and both pizzas we were served: the Butternut Squash & Chanterelle and the Fennel Sausage.
My favorite thing to do at Paragary’s is go to their bar and have a cocktail or glass of wine. That, and take photos of my shoes against the Insta-worthy tile, haha. I also love it when a restaurant has a little detail you look forward to, and in this case, it’s the baguette and salted butter they serve as an appetizer. It’s pretty irresistible as a starter and as a focal point in their main dining room. Be sure to check them out this winter; their menu changes constantly to provide the freshest seasonal ingredients so there’s always something new!
