Umami Restaurant Group Bringing 800 Degrees to New York Next


The L.A.-based restaurant group that brought Umami Burger to town announced yesterday via press release that its 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria will be up next. The “build-your-own,” assembly-line-style, quick-service restaurant (think Chipotle), which happens to have a super-hot oven at the end that cooks $5 to $7 pizzas in about a minute or so, will land in Nomad. And look, they even have a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine! Seriously though, the arrival of Adam Fleischman’s Umami Burger somewhat improbably made a big splash in a town already saturated with a zillion hamburger restaurants. Will 800 Degrees co-creator Anthony Carron be able to pull off the same in a town with dozens of Neapolitan pies?
