Umami Burger Unveils New Look at The Grove

Umami Burger at The Grove in Los Angeles debuted a new design in June, developed by Toronto-based DesignAgency.

The new appearance of The Grove unit, and at all Umami Burger locations moving forward, strives to encapsulate the brand’s promise of being accessible, authentic and spirited. Incorporating polished concrete, neon feature signage, reclaimed and new charred wood, perforated metal paneling, leather, painted millwork edging, and custom graphics specific to each location, Umami Burger's design provides an elevated casual, carefully curated environment, according to a company release.

Umami Burger at The Grove incorporates the brand’s colors — orange, black, and teal — as well as the brand’s signature "U" graphic throughout.

The host and main dining areas combine chocolate leather upholstery, rustic reclaimed wood canopies and a selection of circular banquette, booth, and traditional table seating accommodates up to 73 diners. The bar serves as the focal point of the dining space and seats 11 guests. It features a large mosaic tile backsplash, a wood bar top, and barstool seating.

A large outdoor patio features multi-colored canopies, banquette seating, an exterior bar, wooden stump stools and concrete-finish dining tables. Equipped with a play area for kids, the outdoor space includes brightly colored graphic rubber flooring and geometric planters with chalkboard sides. The exterior patio seats up to 40 guests.

Umami Burger's redesign improved the restaurant’s ability to accommodate large parties, private functions and semi-private events.

The new location will feature a mix of the chain’s favorite menu items as well as exclusives to The Grove.
