When travelling with children, you start to appreciate hassle-free and easy-going restaurants. California Pizza Kitchen is one of my favourites in this sense in the US. They have excellent food that is tasty for adults and children alike, the service is usually fast, and they bring a set of crayons and an activity booklet to kill the time while waiting for the food.
Their pizzas are surprisingly good, and the list is very versatile. I haven’t tasted their pastas, but couple relatives have tried them and found them tasty. Children menu is shorter, and filled with the usual choices — the playfulness CPK has with the main menu has somehow got lost. Which is sad, as at least our boys are keen — sometimes — to try out new dishes and tastes.
