  • In the one minute Eater Umami Burger video, corporate chef John Herndon says the word "umami" 10 times (but it feels like 30): He also shows exactly what goes into the burger and how it's built, and umami burger porn ensues. (Photo: YouTube)
  • An Umami French Dip will be offered at the NYC location only for $13: The meaty behemoth will consists of umami braised short rib, curried pickled cauliflower,
pickled wasabi, and umami au jus. It's an exclusive NYC menu item, as is the 5 spice duck burger with house ground duck and peach apple chutney ($15).
  • A Mayor Hawthorne burger is on the menu for $13: This soulful burger—featuring roasted green chili fondue—was created in collaboration with the retro-soul recording artist. Don't feel too special, the Hawthorne burger is also available LA, SF, and Miami. (Photo: MayorHawthorne.com)

  • People are amped about Umami Burger NYC: But you must decide for yourself if it's worth the hype, and if you even care that the burger chain is opening in New York. If you do, the doors open at 11am on Monday, so be there at like, 5am...Cronut-style. (Photo: Twitter)

Most everyone who is obsessed with burgers and buzzy NYC restaurant openings is already aware that the first location of the L.A.-based Umami Burger chain will open in Greenwich Village this Monday, July 29th at 11am. Only when the hyped burger chain opens its doors will we know just how excited New Yorkers are about the umami-laden burger, and if they will actually take to the creation as their West Coast brethren have. Corporate chef John Herden’s meticulously crafted burger is filled with—get ready—umami secret dust, master sauce, finishing spray, caramelized onions, baked parmesan crisps with naturally high levels of umami, tomato covered in an umami glaze, shiitake mushrooms, and Umami ketchup.

We’ve collected all the relevant information about the NYC Umami Burger opening and the burger itself, just so you can get really amped and plan your visit—or, decide not to hit up the NYC location at all, and go to Steak ‘n Shake instead. Click through the slide show above for all the essential intel you need to be fully prepared for the Umami Burger opening.
