Anyone for Black Bear Burgers?

Dave Feldman | Jun 26, 2001 02:02 AM

I went to the Waterfront Ale House last night, looked at the blackboard for specials, and found the game burger of the day was "Black Bear."

I've managed to live my all-too-long life without ever eating bear, so I ordered it. It actually wasn't as gamy as the waiter led me to expect, sort of a cross between lamb and ostrich in taste, rather dry and lean. I ordered it medium-rare, but it was overcooked, and this might have contributed to my "blah" reaction. Anyone had good bear? Is medium-rare bear better than medium-well bear?

And for that matter, do other bears taste much different from black bears?
