Umami Burger is launching its next “Artist Series” today in collaboration with renowned Spanish-American chef, José Andrés (The Bazaar) with a special burger and select tapas menu.  The burger consists of a pork and prosciutto patty on a Umami Burger bun, topped with a piquillo pepper confit, caramelized onion, and Manchego cheese ($15). One dollar from each burger purchased benefits World Central Market —a humanitarian organization that works toward solutions to end hunger and poverty. The $2 tapas menu includes:  patatas bravas (crispy potatoes with spicy bravas sauce and garlic aioli); date and cured ham pinxtos (serrano ham wrapped dates); and green olive pintxos (olives, anchovies and piquillo pepper confit).
