Celebrate National Filet Mignon Day by dining at Butterfields New American Cuisine. National Filet Mignon Day is observed every year on August 13. Filet mignon is usually meat from a steer or heifer, which is taken from the smaller end of the tenderloin of the beef carcass. Filet mignon is French for “cute fillet” or “dainty fillet.” However, in France, a filet mignon may be referred to as “filet de boeuf,” meaning beef fillet in English.
You can commonly find filet mignon cut into 1 to 2 inch thick portions, grilled and served as is. However, you can also find filet mignon served with a little more flare. At Butterfields New American Cuisine, we serve our customers delicious filet mignon in several different styles. When browsing our entree menu, you will find the savory Thyme Roasted Filet Mignon. This menu item features a crisp potato hash, broccoli raab, and Cabernet demi-glace. While this may quench your taste buds, others may be interested in our Surf & Turf dish. When you order Surf & Turf from Butterfields New American Cuisine, you’re ordering a 5 oz. Canadian lobster tail and filet mignon demi-glace with garlic scampi butter. If that doesn’t make your mouth water, what will?
