The ART of creating that perfect mouthful. It starts with the house-ground, hand-formed patty infused with the Umami Master Sauce. It builds with the carefully crafted combination of toppings resting on the lightly toasted and slightly sweet bun. It is amplified by the vibe of the room, the energy of the community and the fine-dining service with a California casual feel. Finally, it explodes with house-made sauces, paired with unique sides, accompaniments and the perfectly paired beverage. What is Umami Burger? Experience it yourself.. After one bite, you'll accept No Substitutions.
Before Adam Fleischman fell in love with umami, he had a long affair with wine. With the increased exposure to wine, Fleischman's palate matured, spurring his eventual fascination with the fifth taste. Fleischman developed a restaurant concept dedicated to the all-American classic, hamburgers. He opened his first Umami Burger on La Brea in 2009 and has since opened additional locations all around California. In addition, Fleischman helped to create 800 Degrees and Red Medicine. In 2012, Fleischman acquired an ownership stake in L.A. Creamery Artisan Ice Cream bringing his creative culinary talents to frozen treats, creating Porc Phat, Absinthe, Mezcal and Moonshine Ice Creams.
