caffe umbra-the burger

So we finally made it to Umbra for the venerable burger (per MC Slims rec) and must say that we were not too impressed. Both ordered medium-rare burgers with bacon. One burger came out medium/medium rare, the other came out medium/medium well. The fries were totally disappointing. No crispiness, floppy. Eh. Absolutely cannot compare the the Bristol Lounge fries! If the burger had been cooked to our requested temperature, I can see how it could be perceived as one of the better $17+ dollar burgers in town. But if a place cannot get a medium rare burger and excellent fries right, I am just not willing to give it a second chance.
