I was lucky enough to get into Umami Burger for lunch a few days after it opened. After having been to the Umami Burger in LA (on LaBrea) twice in a week, I couldn't wait to get my truffle burger. Oddly, it was rather ordinary tasting and didn't come close to resembling what I had in LA. I hate when a menu item includes truffle/truffle butter and tastes like they just forgot it. The same was true of the parmesan burger--where was the cheese? Maybe they needed time to hit their stride. I may try it again but I'm not sure I can convince my friend to join me again after all my raves were followed by disappointment. The burger you describe in this review sounds like what I had in LA but not close to what I had in NY.
