California Pizza Kitchen to Re-Open at Alton Square With Reimagined Interior and New Menu Items

California Pizza Kitchen,the authority on California-style pizza,plans to open its new prototype restaurant at Alton Square in Summer 2015. With a more rustic, organic atmosphere, CPK is reimagining itself in an effort to “de-chain” and modernize the eatery to create a more personalized and interactive experience for guests. The new design incorporates unfinished, reclaimed wood throughout, along with a warm color palette that gives the interior a relaxed-but-upscale feel. There will be flexible seating to comfortably accommodate a variety of diners and groups, and the Irvine location will also have a separate bar area.

“This will be a great fit for the community and it’s the perfect time to introduce a familiar and established California restaurant that’s changing things up and becoming more dynamic,” said Stacie Ellis, senior director of marketing of Irvine Company Retail Properties.

While classic favorites remain, the new menu has been designed to include unique offerings made with fresh and unexpected ingredients in every category. Alongside California Pizza Kitchen’s signature hand-tossed pizzas, pastas and salads is a new selection of Main Plates such as Fire-Grilled Ribeye and Hearth-Roasted Halibut; seasonal items such as Sunny Side Up Bacon + Potato Pizza and Roasted Garlic Chicken; and Lunch Duos that offer more than 80 pairing combinations for midday diners. To top it all off, choose from a unique selection of hand-crafted cocktails made with fresh fruits, purees and herbs.

“We are thrilled to bring a reinvented California Pizza Kitchen to Orange County diners,” said California Pizza Kitchen CEO G.J. Hart. “We are going back to our roots as a company that embraces innovation and is committed to bringing California creativity to every meal.”
