What I thought it was, was a fillet mignon made with a special kind of butter sauce, served for two.

This is how it is in restaurants. When I order Chateaubriand that's what I get and that's how it is listed on the menu, as "Chateaubriand".

EDIT: typo

It is a recipe not a true cut of meat..It was named for some old French diplomat, statesman etc. It is prepared from a center cut of beef tenderloin..when so cut (size wise) it is many times packaged and labeled at retail meat markets as Chateaubriand. By any name it is tenderloin from beef.

whatever it is, I sure like eating it! However, because of its elegance, it usually calls for the ladies who are to consume it to be wearing pantyhose and the gentlemen to be wearing jackets and ties.

The advantage to being a woman is that since such elegance definitely demands a sit-down affair, no one will know whether I'm wearing pantyhose or not. So there.

The best chateaubriand Buck and I ever had was at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Well, anything they serve is nothing short of awesome. They have some of the best game dishes ever.

Mudbug, you really need to check this place out. The accommodations are divine and the service and food is A+. The Bavarian Inn is near Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. There's lots of sightseeing, antiquing, scenery, etc. to be had on a trip to the BI.

Hey, Katie! thanks for the tip. That is not too far from us. We usually catch Amtrak at Harper's Ferry when we go to Chicago.

Typically, we don't check out these places so nearby because we keep thinking we'll go there "someday." For example, I've visited the some of the Smithsonian museums many times but still haven't made it to the National Portrait Gallery.
