    Go with the tri-tip if you already know it’s delicious. The fillet is also a more expensive cut of meat – does this make a difference to your bill?

    I’d say go with your gut! Honestly I think both sound amazing, and bearnaise sauce is delicious. Your menu looks great. πŸ™‚

    I know you didn’t ask about this, but two q’s from your friendly web-neighborhood vegetarian. Do vegetarians get an appetizer and/or a salad (if the caesar dressing is made with anchovies and thus not vegetarian)?

    heavenlyflower :  I think PP was referrring to the dressing. By nature, I believe Caesar dressing contains anchovies and raw egg.

    Definitely go with the Tri-tip! Filet mignon is a very tender cut of meat, but is by nature one of the least flavorful. If your caterer made a tender and flavorful Tri-tip that will always be tastier than a filet served the same way (i.e. with Bearnaise sauce).

    heavenlyflower :  You’re welcome! cool  After over 5 years living in Argentina/Uruguay (where beef is king…) I’ve learned a lot about beef cuts! Filet used to be my favorite cut, because in the states it’s considered fancy but my Uruguayan husband was appalled. He always say, it has NO flavor! And I’ve learned that he’s kind of right… Any cut of meat cooked correctly can be tender and will always be more flavorful.

    Side note, was watching the food netwrok one evening this week and two grill masters faced off. One made filet mignon and the other a different cut (T-bone if I remember correctly), the judges loved both but the T-bone guy one because of the cut he chose.
