In just a few minutes, Chicagoans will finally get a taste of the forward-thinking burger chain that has made waves on both coasts for years. Umami Burger Wicker Park, the first of many that are slated for the Chicago area, opens at 11 a.m. today.

The design of each restaurant is tailored to its environs (check out the photos of the new place here), and the menus, while highly-based on the Umami Burger blueprints, features some tweaks for Wicker Parkers.

The signature burger here, named the "Calabrese Burger," is a Calabrese sausage patty topped with giardineira, truffled aioli and truffled cheese. Other staples include an array of ingredients heavy on the fifth taste, such as parmigiana cheese, shiitake mushrooms, tomatoes, and truffles everywhere.

The cocktail menu is all new to the location. Staff here is excited about the maple bacon Manhattan in particular.

Read through all the menus below and look for more locations in the area in the near future.
