Filet Mignon Day is Monday at Oscar’s
Oscar’s Steakhouse at the Plaza will celebrate Filet Mignon Day (which is Monday if your calendar isn’t already marked) by offering a pair of dinner specials that dispel any notion the tender cut may not be hearty enough for serious steak enthusiasts. Diners can choose from a 12-ounce filet stuffed with blue cheese or a filet mignon trio of three 4-ounce filets that are blackened, grilled with lobster bordelaise and bacon wrapped, respectively. Specials are $48 apiece. These are in addition to Joey C’s filet mignon, named after Joey Cusumano, a friend of reputed mob boss Tony Spilotro. oscarslv.com
