Sunday is National Filet Mignon Day and Boston is certainly not remiss for options where to dine on this haute day devoted to carnivores. Whether you are looking for a coffee rubbed cut of tender heaven or a decadent one topped with foie gras, we have rounded up some of the best dishes at Boston’s top steakhouses where you now have a good excuse to indulge this weekend.

Smith & Wollensky

Don’t knock it until you have tried it (and then you will quickly become addicted) – the coffee and cocoa rubbed filet mignon at this Back Bay haute spot comes complete with ancho chili butter and crispy angry onions.

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House

Every steak at this Seaport location is perfectly seasoned even the filets, which are made even better when topped with Hudson Valley foie gras. You won’t find a better view to celebrate National Filet Mignon Day than the one found at this oceanfront steakhouse located in the Seaport District. Request a table on the outside deck to enjoy the last few weeks of summer with an unforgettable view.

Grill 23 & Bar

This Back Bay steakhouse is one of the city’s best and has been so since it first opened more than 30 years ago. Consistent simplicity is the focus here – order up a 10-ounce juicy filet or twice-as-nice twin filets that taste even better when topped with cognac-green peppercorn, Bordelaise or Bernaise sauce.

Abe & Louie’s

It’s all about the flavor filled bone-in filet mignon at Abe & Louie’s. The standout signature dish is always cooked to perfection and arrives in a delicious pool swimming in its own juices. Try the tender corn-fed USDA cut of beef skillet blackened for incredible flavor.

The Capital Grille

The Capital Grille is in every major city and for good reason – because it’s simply put, just that good. This weekend, we recommend a little surf and turf topping your succulent filet with some fresh lobster meat.

Ocean Prime

It doesn’t get much better than a juicy filet served with Maytag Bleu Cheese Crust and that’s just what you will find at Ocean Prime in the Seaport District. Start off with a sampling of sushi and then move on to a six-, eight- or 10-ounce filet or 12-ounce bone-in for even more flavor.

Mastro’s Ocean Club

The latest steakhouse newbie to hit the Seaport District is also one of the most well known. Mastro’s Ocean Club, which opened earlier this summer, has the heartiest filet available in Boston ringing in at a massive 18 ounces for the bone-in version.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House

Everyone knows where to go for a juicy steak with a lot of sizzle. Ruth’s Chris made a buttery name for itself when it opened steps from Downtown Crossing and Government Center in the elegant Old City Hall location. Here, you can indulge in 11 ounces of tender midwestern beef served up in a beautifully historic setting.
