Given the lightning-fast proliferation of Adam Fleischman’s Umami Burger to fourteen locations since first opening on La Brea in 2009 combined with the tendency for major investor Sam Nazarian to bestow South Beach with the same cornerstones upholding the success of SBE in Los Angeles (SLS Hotel, Katsuya, The Bazaar)**, it should probably come as no surprise that Umami Burger is now heading to Miami. Reps for the “fifth taste” burger chain announce that the first Umami Burger opening outside of Golden State soil will be on Miami’s Alton Road, named Umami SOBE. The new outpost is predicted to open in 2013, before New York’s recently announced location does, and will feature a “greatest hits” menu from the four-year-old burger empire. 1080 Alton Rd. Miami Beach.
