Automat Kitchen officially opens, representing the next wave of Automat restaurants, but with a few important differences from the original. The automats of old had pre-made foods, ours are all fresh and made-to-order.
They also only accepted nickels for payments when they opened, but we’ll offer a totally cashless and contactless experience instead.
