Night owls with midnight munchies have it rough around here. The options are limited, and the quality questionable. Thankfully, they can flock to The Automatic, where a late-night menu served from 10:30 pm to 2 am, seven nights a week, contains insane insomniac cravings like the hot sauce-spiked “Frito pie from Hell,” Korean fried chicken sandwiches, “funky fries” topped with nori and togarashi spices and buffalo fried sweet plantains with blue cheese. When we can’t sleep, this is what we dream about.
