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. The food is a homage to Americana, although we reckon it’s far from cheap (a plate of breakfast waffles with blueberries sets you back £10). Otherwise, the menu is all about reacquainting with old favourites – so recuperate over chicken noodle soup, indulge in steak tartare, chomp a burger or gorge on mac ‘n’ cheese. There’s also wild turbot steak with grilled asparagus if you fancy something flash. ‘Surly service’ is a bugbear.

    Dean :: Sunday Morning

    Sunday mornings in London are odd. There really isn’t the New York style brunch rush with people lining up outside their favourite eateries just to snag a spot. In fact, up until relatively recently, most places didn’t open until noon and going back 20 years, nothing opened at all. Yes there are the hotels the faux Brassieres but aside from The Wolseley on Piccadilly, there aren’t many American style places about...
