I'm kind of obsessed with burgers. There's something about biting into a buttered, moist bun, with a juicy, perfectly round beef burger inside. I'm salivating just thinking about that.
I've gotten to try a lottt of burgers in my time. Who gets bored of a burger? One of my prime burger joints in NYC you can catch me at (weekly, if not hourly...) is Umami Burger. Last year, you saw me feature the Greenwich Village location, and this time, I'm bringing you live from their new Williamsburg, Brooklyn location! This place is huge. We're talking a massive dining area, extensive bar, and a bacon cocktail. That's right: bacon. cocktail. in one.
I brought along a few friends to try out this trendy joint with me last week. My waiter was incredibly informative and excited about his job working at Umami, which doesn't surprise me. If I got to serve bacon cocktails all day long, I'd be quite thrilled too.
He recombined the parmesan truffle burger, with an oozy egg, which was too die for. And I couldn't pass up a side of maple sweet potato bacon fries: now those, those fries changed my life. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and hidden chunks of sweet, fatty bacon amongst the fries. BLESS.
Head to Umami Burger in Williamsburg at 158 N. 4th Street, now.
