The founders of California Pizza Kitchen are behind this not-so-fast food chain that aims to tackle "cross-culture L.A." in the kitchen.. In Short The mod-luxe decor of this Beverly Hills dining stop is a good start--think yards of rosewood paneling, moody red lighting and plenty of private booths to give off a "sceney vibe." At first glance, the menu seems to suffer from Cheesecake Factory-like schizophrenia, but thankfully, it's not as overwhelming as that. Asian selections include miso black cod with ginger jasmine rice and super-spicy Szechuan dan dan noodles packed with shitake mushrooms and a choice of pork, chicken or shrimp. All-American picks span from buttermilk-battered fried chicken and waffles to meatloaf; the burgers alone take up an entire page. Seafood enchiladas stuffed with scallops, blue crab and shrimp rep for Mexico, which is a little underrepresented for a menu that's supposed to reflect the cross-culture of L.A. Easier said than done.
