Burger News Roundup

Jackalope Bistro is under new management. The menu doesn't seem to have changed much, but the restaurant's name is now "Chef's Quest" and it's got a whole medieval theme. No word on whether or not the burgers are any better/worse than they use to be, though I can tell you the chef almost melted her face off recently.

Mafia Burger--the burger joint which is more roving menu than it is an actual burger joint--has moved from Soprano's to Temple. They're open for lunch from 11-4:30PM and have added/tweaked some of the items that were on the previous Soprano's menu. They intend to open for dinner service soon, if they haven't already.

Crooked Goose Bistro at Wilkinson and Interurban is now home to what I believe is Victoria's first (and only) foie gras burger. Eat Magazine reports The Crooked Goose Burger is a "blend of pork, grass-fed beef and foie gras." Reporter Gillie Easdon describes it as "feral, gamey, unusual and quietly extravagant." Given Victoria tends to pick up on other city's food trends 2-3 years late, you should have plenty of time to sample this one before the protesters start showing up.
