BATON ROUGE, La. (BRProud) — National Filet Day is celebrated Aug. 13. Filet mignon is French for ‘cute fillet’ or ‘dainty fillet’.
A filet mignon is a steak taken from the smaller end of the tenderloin of the beef carcass. Since its from the most tender portion of the tenderloin, it’s one of the most prized cuts of beef – and thus, the most expensive.
Sullivan’s Steakhouse is celebrating National Filet Day with a dinner special for two. Starting today through Sunday, August 16, Sullivan’s will offer a special prix fixe dinner featuring two 8 oz. cuts of filet mignon grilled to order, two sides and two salads for $100.
