Eat Out

Forget about Emeril: This neon-pink eatery’s onomatopoeic name, Bamn!, alludes to the way the food is doled out: It’s an automat—the first one in NYC since the Times Square Horn and Hardat closed in 1991. Patrons enter, deposit change into the vending machine and open a door to receive freshly prepared snacks like chicken nuggets, peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and Japanese doughnuts.
