Square Meal Review of Automat ?

Automat’s up-front American pose is too much for some (especially when the waiter’s opening gambit reminds you that you have exactly one hour to eat and go), but others are more forgiving of its brashness. The retro-diner vibe rings true with its ‘railway-carriage banquettes’, chequered floors and white-tiled walls, and it’s easy to imagine you’re grabbing a bite en route to Grand Central Station.
