Umami Burger has announced its latest Artist Series collaboration with global award winning Chef Daniel Boulud in celebration of Bastille Day on July 14th. Chef Boulud has created ‘The Umami Frenchie’ as an exclusive culinary creation available at participating Umami Burger locations nationwide from July 14 to September 14, 2018. A key aspect of this collaboration is that $1 from each burger sold will benefit charitable organization Citymeals, which provides a lifeline of nourishing meals and vital companionship to New York City’s homebound elderly.
“This collaboration with Umami Burger is first and foremost philanthropic” states Chef Daniel Boulud. “A burger with a cause to support Citymeals and the incredible work they’re doing in New York City. Every time someone will order ‘The Umami Frenchie’ burger, a dollar will be given to Citymeals. This burger also shows people that the French can go casual. I’m known for having created the DB Burger almost 20 years ago, which started the craze of gourmet burgers; I eventually wanted to create a more casual one and that’s how ‘The Frenchie’ came about. It’s different than your typical Umami Burger because it has the DB French touch!”
‘The Umami Frenchie’ burger is made with a juicy beef patty and caramelized onions, tomato compote and crispy pork belly ‘Rillons’, Dijon mustard, fresh tomatoes, Raclette cheese finished with a fresh arugula salad and Bun Au Poivre.
