Umami Burger isn't the only place in town with a menu centered around our so-called "fifth taste." We hear Tribeca Japanese spot Megu has rolled out and umami sushi experience. The restaurant recently revamped its sushi bar so that every two to four people have a chef of their own; for the umami menu, these experts guide diners by pairing different rices (vinegared or not) with different daily, seasonal fish, aiming to gradually build the umami flavor throughout the meal, finishing with miso soup and dessert. The nine-course meal is $190 (212-964-7777).
