California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: We have not once been disappointed by CPK. The list of two-dozen crispy-thin pizzas includes all the standards, but there are also inventive versions like wild mushroom, mango tandoori chicken and B.L.T. --- complete with mayonnaise. Our favorites are the roasted garlic chicken, with its garlic-shallot butter, and the barbecued chicken, the most popular of the pizzas. You also can design your own. If you can tear yourself away from the pies --- we almost never can --- try one of the pastas; we recommend the Thai linguine with spicy peanut-ginger sauce. Another Asian option, the crisp Chinese chicken salad, is satisfying. Salad portions are large, so keep in mind that you can get a half-order. Soups, appetizers and sandwiches made with good hearth-baked focaccia round out the menu. The place even serves carnitas and fish tacos. Whatever you settle on, do get the red velvet cake for dessert.
