Chef Spataro generously offered to prepare this “one-time” dinner several months ago, but his busy schedule made it difficult:  He is the corporate executive chef of the Paragary Restaurant Group, which over the decades has pioneered a diverse menu of restaurants and bars that have helped define Sacramento’s dining culture since the early 1980s.
He is the hands-on authority who keeps the intricate machinery running at Paragary’s, Centro Cocina Mexicana, Esquire Grill and three Café Bernardos. He also just finished teaching a class at ARC on Restaurant Management & Production. By his own admission, he is “incredibly passionate about cooking." When he (and wife Kitty O’Neal) were traveling with their band Skyler’s Pool, he carried the Chez Panisse cookbook and read out of it to anyone who would listen—including Kitty!
This event is now SOLD OUT. Please call (916) 452-2809 to be added to the waiting list.

The Casa Garden Restaurant operates solely to benefit the
Sacramento Children's Home.
