Umami Burger Santa Monica?

Anyone know if it's open yet, and if not, when it will be?

  1. It is not yet listed on the Umami web site.

    1. I was lamenting on this last night as I drove to La Brea...

      It was "originally" supposed to open in November IIRC.

      1. I noticed that the latest Los Angeles magazine referred to "Umami Burger in Santa Monica" ... which turned out to be the Umami truck. Could this be the source of the confusion?

          The truck is a stopgap until the Santa Monica branch opens, which was supposed to happen last November. Every few months, there's an announcement saying they'll be open soon, but it keeps getting pushed back. I can't even get confirmation that the truck is still parked in Santa Monica. Very, very frustrating.

        2. I was at Fred Segal's in January and there was definitely construction going on in the space that's slated for Umami Burger. Other that that, I don't have a specific opening date.

            they're ready to open BUT waiting for final OK from Republic Of Santa Monica,
            Umami Food Truck is 86.

          2. Was in the La Brea location and they said Santa Monica should be opening on Friday, March 12! Let's keep our fingers crossed.
