Ostrich Becomes Sausage at Thunder Burger Tonight

Gamey chef Ryan Fichter is taking another stab at ostrich for his latest "Wild Wednesday" special tonight at Thunder Burger in Georgetown. Earlier this summer, the guy behind such eclectic dishes as beer-braised alligator ribs and kangaroo sliders debuted a burger patty made from the large flightless bird. This time, it's ostrich sausage—"a la bratwurst," according to the restaurant's rep—served with onions and peppers and your choice of sides for $8. Fichter's de-feathered deal kicks off at 4 p.m.
