Umami Burger Restaurant Review

: The Los Angeles-based mini-chain fired up its burger-searing burners in New York City --- its first Big Apple outpost --- to much anticipation (and long waits to get in). All the Umami hits are here: the signature burger may look straightforward but is built with star anise-accented caramelized onions, house-made ketchup, a sea kelp powder, a bonito flake and oyster extract spray, a Parmesan crisp, shiitake mushroom and, finally, a topping of umami-glazed roasted tomato. The result is a very addictive burger. Other options include burgers with bacon lardons and all manner of truffles, or turkey or duck burgers. All can be paired with fries (regular or sweet potato), fried pickles or onion rings. Beverages include ample affordable wines (there are many bottles in the $30 range) and a slew of house cocktails.
