In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


California Pizza Kitchen

Yes, I eat at chains too! California Pizza Kitchen is a place that I've ironically never been to in California, but have gone to a couple of times here in Boston. They can make a pretty decent pizza. This is an early dinner with Keith and Jackie at the Prudential location.

spinach & artichoke dip - $7.49

bbq chicken salad - $9.99

"white pizza" - mozzarella, fontina, ricotta, parmesan, pecorino romano, spinach, garlic & bacon - $11.49

"sicilian" - thin crust with italian sausage, capicola, salami, fontina, mozzarella, parmesan, oregano & basil - $11.49 The spinach artichoke dip is really the reason we go back. That stuff is just so cheesy, creamy, and delicious. A lot of these chain-type places serve it, but I think CPK's version is the best. Plus... it's vegetables! :) The chicken salad is pretty good too, at least for a mass-produced type of salad. The chicken is acceptable, and I like the tortilla strips. The white pizza was way too heavy for me - the fontina and the ricotta really overpower everything. The sicilian is a pretty solid choice, but I think I prefer the normal crust they have to their thin crusts. Update - thanks to Jackie for the prices. Apparently she orders takeout from them a lot.
