The first of the West Coast chain’s New York locations will open next year at 432 Sixth Avenue, and founder Adam Fleischman is looking for an East Coast operations director, in part because he’s got big plans. “Umami Restaurant Group,” the posting states, “expects that it will open at least two to three Umami Burger NYC locations in 2013 and two to three additional stores in 2014.” [Craigslist, Earlier]
