California Pizza Kitchen Heats Up in Santa Clara

The popular eatery brings its famed pies, fresh wood-fired dishes and trending menu additions to Monticello Apartment Homes

Santa Clara, Calif. (July 11, 2017) — California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the chain widely known for its innovative hand-tossed California-style pizza, inventive main plates and other fresh and seasonal items from its newly reimagined menu, has arrived with fanfare at Monticello Apartment Homes.

“California Pizza Kitchen raises the bar as a truly welcoming neighborhood dining hub, especially so for families,” said Easther Liu, chief marketing officer, Irvine Company Retail Properties. “And, it consistently stays ahead of the curve with new items that are available at this Monticello location.”

In addition to the iconic Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, Chicken Tequila Fettuccine and hearty salads like the Italian Chopped, newfangled items are garnering their own cult following. For starters, there’s Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower with house-made Siracha buffalo sauce and for new main courses, choose from wild-caught Hearth-Roasted Halibut or Fire-Grilled Ribeye.

And dialing into the bowls trends, CPK versions are protein-packed with super grains and layered with fresh veggies. Take, for example, the brimming Banh Mi Bowl with too many ingredients to list including quinoa, baby kale, grilled chicken, watermelon radishes, avocado and chili-lime vinaigrette.

CPK has over 200 locations in 32 states and 13 countries. They also serve soups, sandwiches and desserts, an extensive menu for children 10 and under, as well as gluten-free options.

California Pizza Kitchen is located at 3535 Monroe St., Santa Clara, CA 95051
