Automatic Slims May 22, 2011

I want to start off by saying that I have developed a girl crush on Karen Carrier. Not exactly for her, but I have dreams about her food. Between Beauty Shop, Mollie Fontaine, and Automatic Slims (do is on my list), I could eat nothing but Karen creations for the rest of my life and be okay.

I found myself at Automatic Slims on a beautiful downtown afternoon. Erin and I sat at one of the two patio tables to enjoy the sunshine. We got a beer and ordered the blue crab poboy with homemade kettle chips. We also got a side of fried green tomatoes.

All of this was exactly how I expected it to be: amazing. The poboy was juicy and huge. The tomatoes tasted fresh. I wish they would have had a little more batter on them, but maybe that is just the southern in me. They also did not come with a dipping sauce, which seemed strange to me. The homemade chips were perfect. They were thickly sliced, so you could really taste the potato.

On a previous trip to Automatic Slims, I got the porkchop and one of their signature martinis. This is how I suggest trying this place. Go in for dinner, have a drink, and enjoy the romantic atmosphere.

    Karen Carrier no longer owns Automatic Slims. She sold it a year or so ago.
