    The charcuterie here is really savory. Don't forget to get the absinthe ice cream.

    You should try the foie gras doughnut at least once: round, hot and crisp, dusted with ground peanuts. One end leaks jam, and the other a loose, mild foie gras mousse. Read more

    I'm not saying the pastrami sandwich is the best in Los Angeles, but it is the first sandwich I have encountered in a lifetime of pastrami eating that might keep Norm Langer up at night. Read more

    UPDATE: Bummer, cut in half, just another Umami (tho Broadway exclusive is a Shrimp Burger). Other half for events. No Spring Coffee & Donuts :(

    Truffle fries are amazing. I could literally lick the bowl bc the accompanying sauces esp. Diablo are that good!

    Caesar salad with ahi tuna good, rich. Confused about this 2 iced tea refill limit though...

    The Truffle Burger is amazing! The buns are that perfect mix of crunch and soft. Burgers are cooked medium rare which I love, but warn your server if you like otherwise. Get garlic aioli w/ fries!!!

    Burgers are good but the sides really shine like the brussel sprouts, pate, sweet potato fries and macaroni salad. The onion rings are the best I've had. Save room for the fried to order donuts.

    There is a special place in my heart for the truffle burger and sweet fries. This location is great for brunch!

    For the best service, please do your foodie-self a favor & ask for Bryan as your server. Not only is he nice, but he is also super knowledgable in everything you are intrigued to know about Umami !

    Get the Truffle Burger with an order of Tempura Onion Rings. Wash it down with a craft brew and enjoy.

    Truffle Burger. Coke in a bottle. French Fries. Sit on the patio or at the bar and you're bound to chat with some interesting locals.

    The (No B)LT on the Happy Hour menu is great as a faux healthy option. Try it. Enjoy.

    Umami burgs, no thanks. Pigg, too much shock value for my taste. But those donuts, GO HERE FOR THE DONUTS!

    Skip the whipped lardo, but do try the pork liver pâté! Truffle beet salad is amazing!

    The Cali burger is easily one of the best burgers I've ever had and I'm barely into it.

    Try The Cure's pastrami sandwich. Thick slices of pastrami on soft rye bread deliver, once you accept that it isn't served hot. Read more
