California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is opening one of its “Next Chapter” locations in Irvine on Wednesday.
This will be the first remodel built from the ground up in Orange County. The redesigned restaurants emphasize hand-tossed pizzas, hand-shaken cocktails, seasonal entree dishes, a wider variety of lunch combos, flexible seating and decor that reflects the local community.
In Irvine, the chain has added artwork from local landmarks, such as the Great Park Balloon and Irvine Spectrum’s Giant Wheel. Some of the California brews on tap will be the Rocco Red by Fullerton-based Bootlegger’s Brewery and Central Coast’s Firestone 805.
