You can't go wrong at Umami! It's a little pricey, but well worth it! Kobe beef burgers at their best! Also try the cheddar tots (tater tots w cheese inside, served w house ketchup).

The flavor of their burgers are perfect. They are not huge but the perfect size. I had Brussel sprouts as my side. Soooo good . Tots are a must.

We ate here on a Saturday evening when the queue for the Cheesecake Factory was out the door. I’m so glad about that! We both had truffle burgers and they were the best burgers we’d ever had.
