Eating steak has always been a symbol of prosperity. During theturn of the century, steak houses were patronized by the elite.The cattle and the oil barons ate their thick cuts of sirloins smothered with oysters or stuffed with them making it too expensive of a place for the common folk.

Filet Mignons are a tender cut of a steak but not the most flavorful and need to be well seasoned and seared in hot butter for a better tasting steak. If grilling them use a gas grill for a better flavored steak.
