CPK in Hollywood
- Story / Photos By Paige Petrone
California Pizza Kitchen has many locations in Los Angeles, but the restaurant at the tourist haven at Hollywood and Highland is perfect for several reasons, the largest being that Hollywood and Highland is home to the Academy Awards and filled with tourist attractions. This location boasts one of the best views of the iconic Hollywood Sign, which never gets old! It’s also the only spot in the area that offers complimentary and easy parking (free for the first two hours with validation) and also features shuttle service to the Hollywood Bowl.
Back east if a restaurant has a name that includes “Pizza” it is all about the pizza! But that is not the case at CPK! They offer wine, beer, and a long list of specialty cocktails from which to choose. I highly recommend their signature Sangria with rum. Yummy! This is festive, refreshing, and delicious.
The menu has lots of fun California-themed appetizer options. You will find Sticky Asian Cauliflower, Mexican Street Corn, Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower, White Corn Guacamole and Chips, and Crispy Mac ‘N’ Cheese. We shared the Waldorf Salad with blue cheese, apples, grapes, and candied walnuts followed by the Chicken Milanese covered with lemony arugula and shaved Parmesan cheese. Both were really terrific. I will definitely be going back to have them again!
