California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: California Pizza Kitchen, a national chain, offers an original BBQ chicken pizza as its signature dish, but is constantly developing and rolling out new menu items. Among them is a Brussels and bacon flatbread. Salads are substantial, so think of them as meals. Hearty Moroccan chicken salad combines grilled, spiced chicken, roasted butternut squash, chopped egg and medjool dates over crisp romaine lettuce with a Champagne vinaigrette. Or try the miso shrimp salad. CPK's small cravings menu has petite starters such as the Mediterranean plate with white bean hummus, feta, olives and a Greek salad with pita bread. Round out your meal with the chocolate soufflé cake. Beer and wine options include popular brands, or go for a cocktail. Kids especially enjoy the atmosphere and the attention, and another nice perk is the kid-friendly fare. Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan menus are available.
