I am DONE with Umami Burger. This was an actual conversation I had yesterday (9/13) with the bartender at the Studio City location:

Me: May I have a bottle of coke?

Bartender: Sure. Are you ready to order?

Me: Yes. I'll have the Hatch Chili Burger, medium rare with extra cheese and extra green chilies.

Bartender: I'll have to check with the kitchen to see if we can do that.

Me: I am willing to pay extra. Last time I ordered the burger I was disappointed at the amount of cheese and green chilies on it. Why do you need to check with the kitchen?

Bartender: Hold on a sec.

Bartender: I'm sorry but the kitchen manager says that we cannot do that. You see UMAMI Burgers are precisely...

Me: Don't even bother with an explanation! I'll take my check for the coke.

So Hounds my question is: Why do you stop going to restaurants?
