I love Umami because you can sub a portabello mushroom cap for any burger or entree on the menu. They will also sub a lettuce wrap for a bun, which has dairy and eggs in it. They are quite accommodating.

I had the best fries in my life in Umami. The burger was also great and I had to come back there to have another one before I left town.
