Here's a look around New York's first location of West Coast hamburger sensation Umami Burger. Adam Fleischman's LA-based chain specializes in burgers that are topped with umami-rich ingredients like sautéed mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, and Parmesan crisps. And if you don't like umami, the restaurant also offers things like bacon and cheddar burgers, chili cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, and "Cali" burgers. Burgers are priced from $10 to $15, and the menu also includes fries, tots, and cocktails. Umami Burger is slated to open tonight.
Will the New York burger snobs embrace Umami? Or will the hamburger purists kick it to the curb? Only time will tell. Here are some more pictures of the dining room:
