Umami Burger coming to NYC

Friend sent me a link. Should I be excited about this. Something about a Port & Stilton burger says heaven to me. Anyone been to any of the Cali locations? anyone else excited about this?

  1. Umami burger? Well how about a MOS Burger outlet too? Tranquil interior, a wash basin right in front and burgers that aren't overwhelming. If I want to sit and enjoy a hamburger meal, I'd go elsewhere, but on the run, my vote goes to the acronym.

          short answer, it is an Japanese fast food burger place. but back on topic, I am interested in trying Unami burger, wonder how it stacks up to Shake shack

            Umami burger is about the toppings as much as the burger itself.

    2. Tried the one in Hollywood last year. It was OK. We had the Cali Burger and the Umami Burger, eh. I didn't think it lived up to the hype. But I do think NYC's burger scene is very strong right now, anyway.

      1. Had a few of these in Cali when I was out there last year. Damm good burger with excelent flavored topings. Certainly can be a nice addition to the burger rotation in NYC.

        1. apparently on 6th ave and 10th street.

          1. Its a gourmet burger, the umami special its good, the Ketchup is home made, the brioche bun is soft, i recomend, and have good montepulciano wine.
