Automatic Slim's Tonga Club Restaurant Review

: Automatic Slim’s is locally famous for its martinis, and boasts what is, perhaps, the largest martini menu in the city. Drinks have kitschy cool names --- The Elvis (peanut butter and banana), King of Cool (traditional dirty gin martini) and Mantini (a martini made with whiskey) --- that match the sleek rockabilly décor. But don’t ignore the food, which includes inventive takes on contemporary cuisine such as bacon-wrapped scallops and bourbon-glazed Cajun beef tenderloin. Potato chips are hand-cut and made on-site, topped with blue cheese fondue and green onions. And the mac ‘n’ cheese contains both truffle oil and bacon. Brunch brings an Oreo waffle, red velvet pancakes, and an inside-out patty melt. The wine list is decent. Desserts rotate daily.
