The Umami Wait Isn’t So Bad Today

Get it now.

Been holding off on checking out Manhattan's new Umami Burger because of the threat of multi-hour lines? Good news, then: A 1 p.m. spot check today revealed that the wait for two people was quoted as a totally reasonable ten to fifteen minutes. And the actual wait time they text you when there's room for you was twelve minutes. Not bad at all, but, then again, maybe all of the city's burger fiends are just up on 86th Street checking out Shake Shack's new fries.
