  • Lunch, Dinner
At Umami, your experience depends on a variety of factors. Sometimes, it’s a relaxing, open-air spot to slurp ramen, with a low-volume sports game on in the background. Other times, there’s a live EDM show at Shady Park — in which case your experience is likely to be a little more, let’s say, thumpy. The menu — from Chefs Jared Lupin and Matt Marlowe — has variety as well, with multiple ramen and sushi options, many of which have gluten-free and vegan offerings. You can also build your own bowl. (Pro tip: If you’re adding the vegan fried chicken — and we suggest you do — ask for it on the side to minimize sogginess.) But the real star at Umami, aside from whatever celebrity DJ is out back, is the Mr. Roboto Special: a house bowl (spicy shoyu is a favorite), a Japanese draft and sake, for just $12.
