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 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. Consider as well the quinoa and arugula salad, cedar-planked salmon, and fire-roasted chile rellenos. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free menus are available, too. Pair your meal with a local microbrew or a red, white or sparkling wine. Hand-shaken artisan cocktails include citrus adobo and fresh agave margaritas, strawberry basil martinis and several fruit sangrías. Intriguing desserts round out the experience: Belgian brownie soufflé cake, salted caramel pudding, s'mores. Delivery and take-out.
