California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review: California Pizza Kitchen is a go-to place for its signature hand-tossed pies, but the rest of the menu deserves attention as well. Choices include a smoked ham and Emmenthaler flatbread, grilled rib-eye with blue cheese butter, and roasted wild Alaskan halibut with butternut squash farro. Among desserts, go for the Key lime pie and skip the whipped cream. In addition to wine and regional beers, there are cocktails such as a Moscow Mule, strawberry basil martini, and a citrus adobo margarita made with fresh juices and agave syrup. With a location next to one of the downtown cineplexes and across the street from the city parking lot, this is a good spot for a quick weekday lunch or a weekend movie date.
