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.
