California Pizza Kitchen Unveils Remodel Of Wellington Location

On Monday, Dec. 9, California Pizza Kitchen announced that the “reimagination” of its Wellington location was complete.

The reimagined California Pizza Kitchen is reflected in every detail, from décor and design to new hand-tossed California-style pizzas, innovative cocktails and wine flights.

In celebration of the unveiling, California Pizza Kitchen is partnering with Rebuilding Together of the Palm Beaches, which provides critical repairs, accessibility modifications and energy efficient upgrades to low-income homes and community centers at no cost to recipients.

On Tuesday, Jan. 14, guests who bring in a fundraiser flier will have 20 percent of their dining check donated to Rebuilding Together.

“Our ‘Recipe for Reimagination’ has been received incredibly well at our other South Florida locations, and we have been anxiously waiting to introduce our reimagined restaurant in Wellington,” California Pizza Kitchen CEO G.J. Hart said. “We hope that it will inspire guests and remind them about what made them fall in love with California Pizza Kitchen in the first place. We are going back to our California roots to provide an authentic, elevated-yet-relaxed atmosphere for casual diners, families and foodies alike.”

The 4,870-square-foot Wellington restaurant now seats 141guests in a redesigned communal space that has been developed with sustainability in mind. California’s environmental roots are evident in the use of unfinished, reclaimed wood both inside and outside of the restaurant, offering a casual but refined feel that is warm in color. LED lighting is used throughout the space.

California Pizza Kitchen’s traditional pizza counter, which now seats 11, has been redesigned to make the hearth an even bigger focal point, giving guests the opportunity to interact with the pizza chefs and watch them as they hand-stretch and toss California Pizza Kitchen’s new hand-tossed pizza dough.

The reimagined menu features a wide selection of signature flatbreads with new ingredients and flavor combinations, including a new spicy fennel sausage, two different types of pepperoni, fresh mozzarella, hand-crumbled wild Greek oregano, freshly torn basil and more. New appetizers and small plates include Spicy Chicken Tinga Quesadilla, White Corn Guacamole & Chips and Asparagus & Arugula Salad.

Guests can also enjoy an extensive selection of cocktails, including new signature drinks such as the Coconut Kaffir Cooler, made with Hangar 1 Mandarin Blossom Vodka, Perfect Purée Coconut and Kaffir Lime Leaves; and a Strawberry Basil Martini made with VeeV Acaí Spirit, Perfect Purée Strawberry and Fresh Agave Sour. There are also three wine flight options, each with three, three-ounce glasses from the menu.

California Pizza Kitchen is located in the Mall at Wellington Green, (10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Suite 197). For more info., call (561) 793-1601 or visit
