"It's a typical mall restaurant," Bob said, mourning the "chain takeover" of the Plaza.

Is the appeal in the vague connection to California? After all, the Plaza already boasts Baja 600; could a Planet Hollywood be next? As unbelievable as it seems, the popularity of the California Pizza Kitchen is real enough. There was a crowd of hungry customers waiting to get through the front door as we left the restaurant. They didn't care that it was just a pizza joint with delusions of grandeur. This slickly packaged corporate venue is the culinary version of a "reality" TV series. It's so phony that it has to be real. Right?
