I had lunch today at Automat and came to the silly realization that I haven’t ever posted about the delicious American Brasserie in Mayfair. Whoops.
If you haven’t been for a meal, you simply must. The casual diner-type restaurant is perfect for a post-Bond Street-shopping lunch, an amazing Sunday brunch or a great dinner with friends. Although the scene is laid-back, don’t be fooled, you probably need to call ahead for a table.
As a Los Angeles native and one who ate a chopped salad at least three times a week, I was ecstatic to find one on their menu. None of this rocket with a little tomato thing, this is a genuine American-style chopped salad in all it’s glory, and the best one I’ve found in London thus far.
The men in my life say that the hamburgers are fab, and apparently the meat is imported from the US. So if you’re really craving a good US-style burger, then you won’t be disappointed.
BUT my friends, you can not leave Automat without taking a bite of their macaroni and cheese. Choose to add truffle, bacon, or spinach, but whatever you add you literally can’t go wrong. It’s beyond cheesy-gooey-goodnees and the perfect thing to enjoy on a cold winters day!
