California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: We have rarely 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 can also 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. Note that some dishes nod to healthy-eating trends, as evidenced by the quinoa and arugula salad. Soups, appetizers, sandwiches made with good hearth-baked focaccia and filling desserts round out the menu.
