California Pizza Kitchen made a grand entrance in Costa Rica with the opening of an expansive two-story location.

Located at the newly renovated Multiplaza mall in Escazu, just outside the capital city of San Jose, the new restaurant’s design and menu have been tailored to local preferences. Decorated with California-themed accents, the store features floor-to-ceiling windows and two levels of outdoor patio areas to allow guests to “embrace the warm, tropical climate of Costa Rica,” says the brand.

As for the menu, in addition to offering the over 180-unit brand’s classic hand-tossed pizzas, pastas and desserts, it also features items like carbonara pasta, dynamite shrimp, hot wings and California Pizza Kitchen’s new West Coast burger.

The restaurant, owned and operated by franchisee Byron Mora Porras, chairman of Conceptos Gastronomicos, builds on California Pizza Kitchen’s international growth. This year, the brand opened new restaurants in Canada, India and Chile. It says it plans to open an additional Costa Rica location soon.
