Umami Burger

Original burger, Umami Burger

Much fuss was made when beloved West Coast flavor emporium Umami Burger flung open its doors in Greenwich Village last year. There were lines, there was hand-wringing, there were thousands of stamped buns

Aside from a hint of umami, the burgers tasted like pretty good versions of burgers --- that is, not that special. The original (top) benefited from a lacy circle of fried Parmesan and a sweet, umami-soaked roasted tomato, while the truffle (bottom) had garlic aioli and truffle cheese. But hey, a pretty good burger is always worth celebrating.
