California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Pizza certainly is the main draw at this popular international chain, but the menu also includes such appetizers as sesame-ginger chicken dumplings with chili-spiked soy-and-ginger sauce. The original barbecued-chicken pie endures, but the goat cheese with roasted peppers pizza has just the right Mediterranean flavor. Try the Neapolitan version with mushroom, sausage and caramelized onion on a classic thin crust. For salad patrons, there are grilled veggies with diced avocado on crisp romaine (oddly, the veggies are served warm, a curious contrast to the cold greens); those looking for pasta may opt for Chicken Tequila Fettuccini. Kids can arrange any toppings on their own small pizzas. Other locations.
