From the West Coast to its latest location in the West Village, Umami's gourmet burgers are something of a legend. What we adore even more about Umami? Its select menu doesn't overwhelm us with too many choices. We're talking approximately 10 burgers, including a truffle burger, a tuna burger, and some that have been custom created for New York, like a duck burger and a French-dip sandwich. The 128-seat, two-story restaurant is now open, and yes, there is a full bar.
Umami Burger, 432 Avenue of the Americas (at 10th Street); 212-677-8626.
