Paleo-centric food trailer Picnik’s brick and mortar is now open on Burnet. Along with the usual offerings, like butter coffee, bone broth, and gluten-free pastries, the menu expanded to include more dishes.

Owner Naomi Seifter created the new menu with executive chef Dan Salivar and the help of previous Chopped winner Justin Turner as a culinary consultant. Everything is gluten-free, as well as corn-free, peanut-free, and soy-free, so allergy-prone customers won’t have anything to fear.

That means new dishes like breakfast risotto, build-your-own tacos, fried Brussels sprouts, and much more, available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Drinks include the array of butter coffees (like the turmeric matcha), and the alcoholic options, wine, gluten-free beer, and cocktails, will be available later. Check out the full food and drink menus below.

Earlier this year, Picnik took over Fork & Taco’s space, which shuttered in December 2014. It transformed the slightly-fancier taco joint with a coffee lounge and renovated dining room and patio.

Seifter opened the original Picnik within a shipping container on South Lamar spot in 2013. She he wanted to open a place that was friendly to all diets, after having dealt with food allergies herself. The South Austin location will remain in service.

The brick and mortar’s hours are from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
