    Start with the original and work your way through the menu. Protip: Make sure to bring a friend so you can split burgers and try more. Hmmm truffle...

    I was pleased to find the umami tastes I loved in Japan had come to the States. I was also pleased to find that sumo wrestler Yamato Yukimura was no longer looking to "settle the score."

    You can so gluten free. Ask for no bun with your burger and they will put it in a lettuce wrap.

    Location caters primarily to young, urban crowd, so no kids' menu available here. However, you can order tater tots and grilled cheese, which are off the menu, for kids. Whole milk is available too.

    Get the umami burger. It's delicious with a little something extra that makes it memorable! The tempura onion rings and skinny fries are delicious. The sweet potato fries are good but a tad too sweet.

    The Hawthorne: a temp addition to the menu. Beef patty, cognac-parsnip purée, cognac fondue, hatch chiles, and crispy hatch chile straws. Death by burger!

    You may by default get a rare burger that menstruates all over the plate... not that anyone's judging, if you like it that way.
