Umami Burger’s Mini-Me concept, U-Mini, launches this Wednesday at noon. First announced last March, this smaller Umami outpost is planned as a 45-seat testing ground for the empire’s new recipes, featuring a simplified menu of four burgers for now, in a server-less space where new technologies are also explored, like tablet and phone app ordering. Burgers, shakes, and fries will come at a smaller price than other locations, with a focus on pre-orders and takeout. 1131 Westwood Ave. Westwood Village.
