Umamicatessen Sign Now Up and Soft Opening Announced on Broadway in Downtown LA

The new sign for Umamicatessen was installed this week for Umami Burger's new flagship restaurant in Downtown LA

We have all been waiting eagerly for this day to happen: the opening of Umami Burger’s flagship location, called Umamicatessen, at 9th and Broadway–in the midst of some of the most exciting urban redevelopment in LA history. According to an email sent out by BringingBackBroadway, the soft opening for the new restaurant is set for March 3 (that’s next Saturday) with an official ribbon-cutting grand opening not long after.

With 6 other locations in LA, Umami Burger has become one of the most popular “burger lounges” in the city. Many see the flagship location, Umamicatessen in Downtown LA, as the next level of Umami Burger and another affirmative sign that not only supports Downtown LA’s urban revitalization, but also Broadway’s future as the next hottest destination on the West Coast as it continues to attract new investments and dollars.

This intersection of Broadway and 9th Street is finally gaining the critical mass it needs to make a regional impact that will likely become a huge magnet for more development to follow. Basically, becoming catalytic by virtue of synergy. Within a stone’s throw of the new Umamicatessen includes: the new Ace Hotel under development, Sparkle Factory, Two Boots, and Pattern Bar.

    Just checked the place out today. A great space to liven up that block with the new Ace Hotel hopefully coming block away. But can’t any restaurant designers do anything but more reclaimed wood?
