Mayer Hawthorne, that bespectacled singer that sounds more or less like The Dramatics if they were fronted by Eddie Kendricks, is designing a new burger for Umami Urban in Hollywood. A regular of the restaurant’s, The Hawthorne will find cognac-infused parsnip puree and cognac fondue sauce, hatch chiles, and crispy hatch straws on top of an Umami patty. With that much cognac, shouldn’t this be called The Lady’s Man? The burger will be unveiled next Tuesday at 8:00 P.M., alongside some DJing by Mayer and DJ Billy Goods, at 1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd.
