As flightless birds go, ostrich is mighty tasty and very wine-friendly. The lean meat comes from a farm in Death Valley. It is CryoVac’d with fresh herbs and held at rare in an immersion circulator, then grilled to-order and served with roasted garlic. Though it’s technically a bird, it’s best enjoyed medium-rare like a steak. Try it with a side of Peas Three Ways: a mélange of sweet English peas, snap pea pods and pea tendrils sautéed with Beech mushrooms and preserved Meyer lemon zest. $37 ostrich, $10 peas, in the Forum Shops at Caesars, 733-7373.
