    Ok, Grill'd next for me. I preferred HB to Burger Edge and Burger Culture in Williamstown. Haven't tried the Rockpool burger yet either.

    Thanks for the recommendations.

    Gilbert and Tobin do have a bald partner who seems to only able to use the bottom two buttons on his shirts. It's an interesting look to show your clients.

    PR, I thought Strange Wolf stopped serving burgers after their neighbors complained. Thanks for the recommendations!

    Edit: looks like they're serving them again

    Yes.

    I'd say Herring don't stock it because they stock their own Loake-made Wingtip in dark brown, albeit on the 026 last.

    Maha is fucking excellent, but never had a burger there.

    (hope we're talking about the same place - Middle Easter food mainly)

    I've never tried the burger at Maha either - always gone with their more exotic fare. Great place, all the same.

    Complained because their burgers are too delicious?

    You're welcome mate, give this one a shot too:

    On the burger front - and this is a little out of the ordinary - for a different burger experience in the CBD, try Sushi Burger.

    http://sushiburger.com.au/whats.html

    I recommend the Soft Shell Crab Sushi burger. Basically an entire soft shell crab in the centre. $7. Amazing.

    (Not affiliated with them in any way, just spent a few lunchtimes there)

    AUSTRALIAN iconic clothing and boot maker RM Williams has fallen into foreign hands, with French luxury brand giant LVMH Group believed to be close to finalising a deal to purchase the 81-year-old retail company.
    It is understood that Singapore-based private equity firm L Capital -- a company backed by LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton -- is about to buy a majority stake of about 55 per cent in RM Williams, with the current owner -- former News Limited chief executive Ken Cowley -- to retain the balance.
    News is the publisher of The Australian.
    Cowley was a close friend and confidant of company founder Reginald Murray Williams, and has owned the business since Williams died in 2003 at the age of 95.
    "We don't have any announcement to make at this stage," an RM Williams spokeswoman said yesterday.
    According to one media report, L Capital will make a capital injection of about $50 million to help fund growth initiatives.
    When RM Williams was put up for sale last month, the bush outfitter said it was "assessing external commercial growth and expansion plans".
    Under Cowley's leadership, the bush outfitter is now exported to 15 countries around the world and has a retail store network of more than 50 stores, as well as 900 plus stockists.
    According to L Capital Asia's website, the private equity firm typically takes minority stakes in portfolio companies within the aspirational segment.
    The website says it has a pre-defined exit objective following an investment horizon of about four to five years.
    On the other hand, it said "LVMH typically takes majority stakes in companies in the luxury end of the market, with a longer-term view."

    I've passed it a number of times but never during lunch so I haven't tried it out yet. Always been curious though.
