PAGU, nestled in the heart of Cambridge, Massachusetts, has become renowned for its extraordinary blend of Japanese and Spanish flavors, creating an unparalleled and unforgettable dining experience. With its sleek and contemporary ambiance and exceptional dishes, PAGU captivates guests with its fusion of time-honored techniques and imaginative twists.
Chef Tracy Chang, the visionary behind PAGU, opens up about her ambitions for the restaurant, stating, “The dream was to create a space that was homey and welcoming to guests, as if they were coming to our hearth, our home, versus just another restaurant.” This commitment to fostering a warm and inclusive environment rooted in food, community, and collaboration is evident throughout PAGU.
The design process of PAGU was guided by Chef Tracy’s unwavering dedication to crafting an extraordinary culinary space. Reflecting on their decision to use Hestan for the open kitchen suite, Chef Tracy explains, “We intentionally decided to use Hestan for our open kitchen suite prior to opening the restaurant. We visited the HQ in CA and were impressed with the quality, attention to detail, and modular design.” The shared values of quality and meticulousness between PAGU and Hestan culminated in an ideal partnership.
We are honored to be part of Chef Tracy’s and PAGU’s much-deserved success. As we continue to highlight other restaurants with Hestan kitchens, we want to emphasize the importance of finding the right appliances that will look and work the best in your kitchen.
