My friend, Kyle, editor of Chicago Food Magazine tagged along with me. We begin in the Umani ride with a signature cocktails the Nomad.

Truffled Beet Salad
Truffled ricotta, smoked almonds, wild baby arugula and truffle dressing.
Buckle your seat belts and umamify your fries. We opted to truffle 'em. The thin fries were topped with truffle cheese fondue and truffle salt.
The dipping sauce line up comprises of jalapeño ranch, diablo sauce, garlic aioli and Umani ketchup.
Can you keep a secret??? Umami has "off the menu" tater tots. You MUST order them!
The fried pickles are made from artisan-crafted pickles, breaded with panko and served with jalapeño ranch and shaved parmesan.
Let's bring on the burgers! Kyle and I split the original, the manly burger and the exclusive Calabrese burger.
Parmesan frico, shiitake mushroom, roasted tomato, caramelized onions and Umami house ketchup.
