MID-CITY— Amy Pressman, partner with Nancy Silverton in their forthcoming Short Order burgery, is not at all worried about that Umami flagship hitting The Grove. According to Pressman, Umami founder Adam Fleischman wants his burger chain to be "the new Fuddruckers, the new Johnny Rockets." On the flip side, every part of Short Order will be "really spectacular and really distinctive." Ouch. [HuffPo]
