Day 1: California Pizza Kitchen

$15 Gift Card & 2 Small Plates at California Pizza Kitchen

Pizza is on everyone’s wish list this year! And so is North Atlantic salmon roasted on a cedar plank topped with smoked paprika and lime beside white corn and spinach succotash with Feta. Or perhaps the Chicken Tequila Fettuccini with creamy jalapeño lime sauce, spinach fettuccine, red onions, bell peppers and fresh cilantro. California Pizza Kitchen also just announced their must-try holiday cocktails, the Harvest Punch, with Grey Goose Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower, Monin Pomegranate, cranberry juice and fresh agave sour; and the Mint Icicle, featuring Grey Goose Vodka, Kahlúa, Peppermint Schnapps and half & half, drizzled with chocolate syrup and topped with a mint sprig. Now with the convenience of valet parking Thursdays through Sundays from the Paseo Nuevo South Parking Garage, near Macy’s, California Pizza Kitchen is the perfect dining destination for a family dinner around the table or a romantic evening for two.


As you gather around with the people you love this holiday season, cheers to you and the gift of giving.

Paseo Nuevo is proud to be the heart of downtown Santa Barbara and want to celebrate by giving back to you, our guests and incredible community. CHEERS! And good luck.
