The restaurant specializes in special diets, so when I'm doing a Whole 30 it's my special go-to. (Currently, I'm eating birthday cake, so clearly, it's not right now).
I looked over the menu and I love that they have low carb, paleo options. I put on a few lbs quarantine weight that I need to take off, I will definitely try the place. Thank you for the recommendation.

It's very tasty and a complex menu for diets that sometimes just get "salads" are alternatives. Another good option nearby is Honest Mary's. It's really just a hispter Chipotle. I went for a pre-half marathon dinner with friends. We wanted to do Picnik, but they were booked and we needed to get up early the next day so we couldn't wait around. HOnest Mary's is right across the street and it was an adequate back-up to Picknik.

I'll check it out, thank you.

Yes, I tried that place on recommendation. The Pappardelle Bolognese was really good. I think it's in the Warehouse district if I remember correctly.

“Warehouse District”
I like to refer to it by its original historical nickname, “Guy Town”. It was Austin’s red light district 1870-1913, full of saloons, brothels, cribs, and gambling joints.

That's Austin. I have never heard of that. You seem like quite the historian. I rarely meet people in person who are actually native Austinites. I met a guy the other day who was, great conversation.

Am not a native, as I was born at Fort Benning, Georgia and was an Army brat until my dad retired. He moved the family to Autin in 1959 when I was in high school.
My kids & grandkids are Austin born though.

red ash is great. We typically eat too many appetizers and then cant eat our entrees.

I guess technically I’m Texan born (not Austin) but spent my life scattered all over the country. I don’t think I’m a native anything. Nomadic I guess?
