The Age of Romanticism: Chateaubriand this Weekend

300px-Caspar_David_Friedrich_032
As we look out the window and see the cool grey mist of the marine layer gently hanging over our beautiful city, there is a craving within for food that will warm the body and drink to enrich the soul. This weekend, as our featured entree, Chef Daniel will be offering the classic dish Chateaubriand. It was first created in the early 1820’s for author and diplomat Vicomte de Chateaubriand by his personal chef Montmireil. Daniel will be using the leanest and most tender cut filet mignon served with tournee potatoes, asparagus, baby carrots, and mushrooms in a red wine demiglace finished with a tarragon shallot butter. Now what to drink? Perhaps you like to wrap your hand around a pint glass of hand crafted beer or if you prefer wine, will it be in the style of the old world or the new world? Here at Jayne’s we have created a balanced list of selections from around the world and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. We look forward to serving you.  Have a wonderful weekend!
