California Pizza Kitchen arrives at Fashion Square

I never thought this was a big deal. So it was a surprise to me when a room full of residents got excited as it was announced last Spring. Interestingly enough, the General Manager of the mall was recently appointed to the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council.

By the way, this is a CPK ASAP:
The new CPK ASAP is designed for customers "on-the-go." The menu features a specialized selection of CPK's most popular menu items along with a "grab-n-go" case stocked with fresh salads, sandwiches and beverages.

While the CPK ASAP has ample seating inside for those looking to dine-in, the new restaurant also has a specific Take-Out counter intended to facilitate the process for guests wanting to take their food to go. A newly designed interior features soft tones
and warm yellows, with large flat screen televisions for those looking to grab a seat at the counter.

Its menu will not only include a variety of CPK's most popular hearth-baked pizzas, salads and appetizers, it will also feature nine sandwiches and two soups that are unique to CPK ASAP. The new French Dip Panini along with the Grilled Vegetable Panini, Turkey Club Panini and a variety of sandwiches including Roast Beef, Chicken Salad and Herb Chicken Focaccia are just a few of the innovative items that will be available. Also available at CPK ASAP are CPK's signature hearth-baked pizzas in a larger, 14-inch size, perfect for sharing with friends or family.

The 3,000 square foot CPK ASAP seats 95 people and is located at 14006 Riverside Drive on Level One near the Main Entrance of Fashion Square Mall. Hours of operation are Sunday: 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Monday through Saturday: 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Guests can dine-in or place a take-out order by calling (818) 783-5001. [Business Wire]

With the opening of CPK ASAP, I'm reminded of the open air mall that was the Fashion Square and the Fashion Square Deli that called it home.

I thought the ASAP meant they'd have NO seating. Guess I missed the marketing. That place is SCREAMING for restaurants ... and stores that appeal to non-female, post 30-year-old sub-$100K-income types ... but I digress.

Nerd,

I remember both the open air mall and the Fashion Square Deli. I went to college with one of the members of the Belzberg family who owned the deli, they were very nice people and the food was great. I don't know when but at some point the Belzbergs sold it and it lasted for some time after that under new owners if my memory serves me right.

The interesting note about the Fashion Square is that enclosing the mall is probably one of the things that killed the neighboring Sherman Oaks Galleria. And now the once indoor Galleria is an open air mall (sort of). Funny how things turn out.

CPK / Shmee-P-K - another formula driven restaurant - designed for our fast food society. Whilst in Sherman Oaks why not try some homemade cooking - always delicious - and often wavers on the amount of cashews in the cashew salmon salad because the cooks hands are different sizes!!! Not formula driven - just good homecooking - visit www.gotgourmet.com for more info!!!

A good food lover!!!
