After years of anticipation, Los Angeles-based Umami Burger is opening its first New York location on Monday. This outpost is exclusively offering the Duck Burger, which Umami owner Adam Fleischman told Platt, "will blow your mind." The Sixth Avenue sit-down restaurant, which opens at 11 a.m. daily, will have a selection of Umami's greatest hits, plus exclusive duck and French Dip burgers. There's a full bar, too. Fleischman's already announced plans to open in Williamsburg (at 4th and Bedford) and at the the World Financial Center's Brookfield Place Dining Terrace, so get excited. Check out the space and a few of the burgers, straight ahead.
Umami Burger, 432 Sixth Ave. (near 10th Street.), 212-677-8626
Update: The burgers above are actually sliders. But sliders are not on Umami's regular menu: They're just occasionally made for events and tastings. The average Umami patty is around six ounces.
