A SmackAttak Club from Smacky’s on Broadway. PICABU BISTRO 901 W. 14th | 624-2464 Picabu attributes its longstanding success to its menu’s flexibility. Rather than offering a segregated section for vegetarians or the gluten-intolerant, it simply tweaks its dishes to cater to customers’ needs. Try anything with fire sauce on it. Creamy and garlicky with a spicy kick, this housemade condiment is served on everything, from prawns to pasta, or tofu if you so desire. They have chocolate peanut butter pie, too.
