More than just Pizza on the Reimagined Menu at CPK, Have you been?

     We had the opportunity to sample some of the new items at CPK from their recently reimagined menu. It had been awhile since we had visited a CPK location so we were looking forward to seeing what all was new. Of course CPK is all about the pizza, but there is so much more to try.

For starters, they have a line of California Flatbreads, perfect for sharing and not too filling. It's a great way to get your pizza fix and still try out one of CPK's fabulous main entrees. We tried the Shaved Mushroom + Spinach as well as Bianco Flatbread .

 Another favorite of our was the Avocado Club Egg Rolls, great with or without the ranchito sauce or the Herb ranch they are served with.

And for adult refreshments, the featured Blood Orange Sangria made with Bacardi Limon, Kendell-Jackson Chardonnay and Fresh Agave nectar was my favorite along with the California Roots made with Avocado and Mint, Vodka and a Fennel Salted Rim. Sounds a bit unusual but was very tasty.

For our main courses it was all about the surf for him and turf for me. I ordered the Fire Grilled Rib Eye. It was a generous 12oz. portion topped with a Pinot Noir salt and a creamy blue cheese butter. Served with it, like anything else is needed, were roasted fingerling  potatoes and a lemon-garlic arugula salad.

My husband went with the Hearth-Roasted Halibut ,wild caught, roasted on a cedar plank and served up with grilled asparagus, butternut squash farro and baby kale.

With the fall season comes pumpkin offering, so we couldn't resist trying the Pumpkin Cheesecake. Made with a ginger crumb praline crust, a drizzle of praline glaze and a side of fresh whipped cream. It's a perfect dessert for sharing.
