Arriving in London six years ago, charming restaurateur and architect Carlos Almada had a vision to create a venue with New York style for international trendsetters. “It’s all about New Yorkers” he says. Automat, located on where London-bound celebrities head for refined yet relaxed dining, serves delicious yet classics fares such as Steak Tartare, Mac & Cheese, and the best imported Nebraska USDA grade beef, among many others. Located on the same property but on Berkeley Street, Almada is a fine dining silver service restaurant, with a 1920’s New York and ‘old school’ California glamour atmosphere, which transforms into a nightclub as the night approaches and the lights dim down.
