This Just In: Umami Urban to open in Hollywood's Space 15 Twenty on Friday
Umami Burger owner Adam Fleischman confirms that the third outpost of his savory Japanese burger joint, this one called Umami Urban, will open Friday at Space 15 Twenty (which is also home to an Urban Outfitters store) in Hollywood. There will be an attached full bar called Chu-Hi, which will specialize in Japanese cocktails.
Considering that it's half a block north of Sunset Boulevard and right across from Amoeba Music and the ArcLight, it's a safe bet the restaurant will make for many a happy hipster.
Umami Urban is large, featuring 70 seats both indoors and out. The menu will feature classic Umami burgers, sandwiches and daily specials. The venue is also equipped with a space for private parties, movie screenings, art exhibits and concerts with Umami food and drink on offer. (If you're familiar with the space, there is a courtyard where bands occasionally play.) For availability, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eat your heart out, Hollywood.
Umami Urban, 1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd., Los Angeles. (323) 469-3100.
