SANTA CLARA, Calif. (October 13, 2016) – California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority in creative dining with a California vibe, will bring its elevated casual dining experience, innovative menu and best-in-class hospitality to Monticello Apartment Homes in Santa Clara. CPK’s newest location will showcase its fresh, new look with rustic design elements and reclaimed wood for a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
CPK features California-inspired fare prepared fresh from scratch every day using high quality, seasonal ingredients – including artisan hand-tossed pizzas, shareable small plates and fresh and creative salads. Unique pastas and main plates such as Fire-Grilled Ribeye finished with pinot noir sea salt and wild-caught Hearth-Roasted Alaskan Halibut round out the menu.
The new restaurant will also feature a freestanding bar, which will offer CPK’s hand-crafted cocktails, premium wines and local beers, a large 90-seat outdoor patio, an indoor herb garden and an open kitchen where guests can watch their meals being expertly prepared.
“California Pizza Kitchen will be a terrific addition to the growing collection of eateries at Monticello Apartment Homes,” said Dave Moore, president of Irvine Company Retail Properties. “We are creating a new ‘go-to’ destination for the surrounding community.”
In addition to California Pizza Kitchen at Monticello Apartment Homes two new eateries are also set to open:
- Konjoe Burger Bar, which offers a modern spin on fast-casual burgers and sides inspired by Asian and Pacific Island flavors. The award-winning concept (named “Silicon Valley’s Best Burger”) sources high-quality ingredients from local farms and only uses beef, pork and poultry that are raised naturally with no added hormone or antibiotics. All burgers include house-made condiments and unique toppings such as pickled jalapenos and kimchi cucumbers.
- Vitality Bowls Superfood Café, which specializes in açaí bowls topped with granola and a variety of superfood mix-ins such as chia seeds, kale, goji berries, flax seed and bee pollen. Smoothies, fresh juices, soups, panini and salads are also available. All items on the menu are made-to-order and carefully prepared to avoid cross contamination. No ingredient fillers such as ice, frozen yogurt, added sugar or artificial preservatives are used.
CPK, Konjoe Burger Bar, and Vitality Bowls Superfood Café will be located at 3555 Monroe Street on the ground level of Monticello Apartment Homes and will be open in the first half of 2017.
