After serving up beer-braised alligator ribs, ostrich burgers, kangaroo sliders, turtle poppers, and, last week, yak,  Thunder Burger‘s exotic meat specialist Ryan Fichter is revisiting an old friend for this week’s “Wild Wednesdays” special: black bear.

In Young & Hungry’s recent profile of the experimental young chef, Fichter noted having previously cooked black bear stew and roasted bear loin at the former Maxim restaurant in downtown D.C.

On Wednesday, Fichter will dish up black bear burgers topped with blackberry compote for $14, which includes a choice of one side. The special starts at 4 p.m. and lasts only as long as the supply.
