Umami Burger has announced a collabo with Michael Voltaggio who created a limited edition Monte Cristo Burger, of which a portion of proceeds will benefit Los Angeles Mission. The Monte Cristo Burger is made with Umami Burger’s signature beef patty, covered with Gruyere Fondue and Prosciutto on a custard-soaked and fried Umami Burger Bun, topped with powdered sugar and served with a side of Umami Maple Syrup.
The winner of Bravo’s Top Chef Season 6, Michael Voltaggio was named one of Food and Wine Magazine’s Best New Chefs in 2013. His flagship restaurant, ink., was named GQ Magazine’s Best New Restaurant in America in 2012 and Voltaggio’s sandwich shop, ink.sack, has huge recognition as well (he recently opening its second outlet inside LAX’s Tom Bradley International Terminal).
Available starting tomorrow, Michael Voltaggio’s Monte Cristo Burger will be sold at all Umami Burger locations nationwide, while supplies last, for $15. $1 from each burger will be donated to the Los Angeles Mission, which provides help, hope and opportunity to men, women and children in need.
